School Council has a very important role in school as we help to lead on school improvements and make sure pupils’ voices are heard. We have lots of exciting plans for this year which we look forward to sharing with you through the year.
Our School Council gives all the children in the school a voice through the representatives that have been chosen by each class. We meet every Monday to discuss issues and to plan our School Council Assembly.
Work as a School Councillor helps to put Article 12 of the Rights of a Child by the United Nations Conventions into practice. Article 12 says:
“Children have the right to say what they think should happen, when adults are making decisions that affect them, and to have their opinions taken into account.”
