School Council

Having a school council representative is a very important aspect of our whole school approach which gives everyone involved in our school a voice. It develops our school into a caring community where pupils, teachers and parent / carers work in partnership towards shared goals.

In Year 6 each class has two school council representatives. In order to apply for this role, children had to take part in a democracy, which is part of our British values. Children made mini election campaigns and speeches on why they believed they were the most suitable candidate for the role.

Our children then cast their votes in the class ballot box, where the results were counted and verified. Below are a few examples of their speeches detailing their manifestos.
