Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
Our School Council is made up of
12 children from year 1 to year 6
A boy and a girl from each class
We are elected by our class to represent the views and to provide a voice for all pupils to help make changes and improve the school.
How to become a School Councillor
Anyone can apply for the school council at the start of the year when the school council elections. You must design a poster and present it to your class on why you would be a good member of the school council. The children in the school will then vote in a secret ballot. All votes are counted and verified by 2 members of staff. The successful candidates are informed and the plan for the year will begin.
Who we are and what we do
- 1 chairperson
- 1 vice chairperson
- 1 minute taker
We meet on a regular basis with Mrs Pickett who is the staff representative for the school council. We discuss any ideas, problems or issues arising and put forward the views of the other pupils in the school. We help to organise fund raising events, check the learning and work alongside school governors and other members of the local community.
ü 2 of our school council members from Year 6 attended the Super Ambassadors day at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff this term.
