School Council

What is a school council? 
A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

 

What jobs are there? 
Each year, every class will normally elect 2 representatives to be members of the school council.

The council will then meet to elect officers such as:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

In a larger school (more than 400 pupils) there may be separate year councils, with a large meeting of the whole school council once a term.

 

What does it do? 
A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
