Welcome to our Astwood Bank First School Council Page!
What is a school council?
A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. At Astwood Bank First School we elect two people from each class in Year 2, 3, 4, and 5.
"School council" means all kinds of school-based groups run by students, including student forums and youth parliaments.
What does it do?
A school council does a number of things:
- The school council meets to discuss and sort out pupil ideas and problems. These may include ideas for fundraising events, ideas to improve school routines or problems.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as running stalls, writing letters, arranging meetings and raising money.
