At the start of each year, classes in KS1 and KS2 take a vote on who they would like to be their two class representatives. In each year group, two of these representatives are elected to be year group School Council members.
These elected class representatives have the job of running regular class forums throughout the year. At class forums, pupils address a range of questions about school issues, some generated by staff and some arising from AOB at council meetings.
Minutes of these pupil forums form the agenda for School Council meetings and are discussed and actions decided. The aim is for School Councillors to then feedback through assemblies to report on any actions taken.
School Councillors particularly enjoy the AOB section of our meetings which are always lively and give them a chance to raise issues their class mates have reported to them.
