Each class across the school will have a representative on the council. Their job is to represent their fellow pupils opinions and raise issues within the school. The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and be involved in planning and things like the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and interviewing staff.
A good school council must:
- Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible;
- Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views;
- Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views;
- Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
