School Council at Astwood Bank Primary
What is a school council?
A school council is a group of students who are elected by their peers to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. At Astwood Bank Primary School, we elect one child from every class to attend regular meetings with the deputy head.
Astwood Bank Primary is proud to give children a voice!
How often do they meet?
Councilors aim to meet every other week. Dates are posted on the bulletin board in advance and teachers provide time in class for children to report any concerns, ideas or requests to their class representative.
What does it do?
- Councilors get together with the deputy head to discuss matters relating to whole school improvement.
- The school council may discuss ideas for fundraising events; they might generate ideas to improve curriculum areas or any other matters raised by children within the school.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed.
