As a school we value pupil voice and opinions. Our School Council openly seeks views of our pupils in the running of our school. This helps to ensure pupils become partners in their own education making a positive contribution to the school ethos.
Children who are School Council representatives wear special ties, so you can spot them easily!
Mrs Millward and Mr Spittle run the School Council meetings each week.
The School Council reps liaise with their classes to share changes and progress in the school and feedback any concerns to the meetings each week.
Children learn to listen to others and to recognise themselves as worthwhile individuals with a right to be heard. School Councils enhance the influence of positive peer leadership. The council meets weekly and two representatives from each class attend the meetings. The pupils take suggestions from their class peers
and bring their own agenda items to the meeting. The school seeks opinions from the pupils as to how they believe the school should be run.
School Improvement Ideas
Pupils can suggest improvements and have done so in areas such as play times and lunchtimes. Visiting organisations often meet with the School Council to discuss important community projects and they have also held meetings in the local council chambers. The School Council help to ensure the school is a well-run, safe and happy environment.
Our School Council went on a trip to Oldbury Council Chambers. It was interesting to see how the chambers function. They met the Deputy Mayor and her Consort and shared morning refreshments with them. We felt very official!
