We have an active School Council with representatives from Year Three to Year Six. Council members are elected each term by each of the classes. This is done through pre-prepared speeches read out anonymously to the class. The Council meets twice a month and is actively involved in improving the school. It suggests new initiatives. This year, it took part in designing and creating the school calendar, creating a new school community house system, new playground equipment and a new school prospectus. Members liaise with their class peers to ensure that they have a good overview of opinions when discussing current issues.
We asked former and current pupil delegates for their views on the School Council. Here are some of their responses.
