School Council

Pupil Voice

Pupils develop their understanding of two key British values, democracy and mutual respect via the School Council. Those wishing to be elected present to their class as part of the election process. The children do an excellent job of sharing why they should be elected and for this reason, elections are held every term to give more children the opportunity to be a member of the school council.

School council members meet with Mrs Padbury once week in the meeting room where they share lunch and work together to make a difference. Each term will begin by celebrating what we all like about our school but importantly the focus then moves to how we can make our school even better. Each term children will also have an event/ mini project to work towards.
