Nurturing Achievement: Growing and learning together
At the start of each year two children in each class from Y1 to Y6 are chosen by their classmates to be their school council representatives.
The first meeting of the council was what we could call housekeeping: electing a chairperson, vice-chair and organising a committee to advertise for and appoint a secretary and assistant to take minutes and organise school council meetings.
After a demanding selection process two worthy candidates were appointed. The unsuccessful shortlisted candidates were then delighted to be appointed as associate school council members. Their job is to support our very youngest members when they feed back to their classes. This was a very rewarding experience for those children involved and great practise for adult life!
The school council have now met to organise themselves into committees. By working in smaller groups, the council ensure that tasks are shared out and that everyone's voice is heard. The full school council will now only meet once every half term so that the different committees can feed back on their activities.
