What is Children’s School Council?
Children’s School Council is a group of children who meet each week to discuss issues within the school.

Why do we have a Children’s School Council?

  •  To improve the school according to the children's point of view.
  •  To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
  •  To discuss and raise issues.

How do I become a Children’s School Councillor?
At the beginning of each year, children can nominate themselves. Nominees present to their class the reasons why they would make a good councillor. Each class votes for their councillor.

What we do in the Meetings?
Each councillor meets with their class to discuss ideas about changes and improvements to the school. The issues are then raised in the meetings and councillors discuss how to move forward with these ideas. They carry out surveys and votes within their classes so that each class's opinion is represented. These opinions are then fed back to the
council and the opinion of the majority is taken forward.
