Why do we have a School’s Council?
The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
What do we do?
Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council.
What have we done so far?
The School’s Council has held a cake sale in aid of ‘Wear it Pink Day’ supporting breast cancer. The children have also been in charge of organising and promoting the ‘Shoe Box Appeal’ at Christmas. This saw children from St. Michael’s creating special Christmas shoe boxes to send to others less fortunate then themselves. The school council are currently busy discussing fundraising ideas for this year’s BBC Comic relief appeal. Future projects include key stage 2 supporting the reception children to develop their gardening area.
