A school council is a group of pupils from Year 2 to Year 6 elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with your head teacher and governors in 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.
To be effective, the 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!
The School Council is led by Mrs. Barmby-King and the following students were elected by their class to be the class representative:
Cary: Annika & Chloe
Huntspill: Ava & Harvey
Somer: Max & Corben
Brue: Max & Tailor
Exe: Lauren (Chair), Jacob (Vice Chair), Ben & Adley
