A School Council is a representative group of pupils who have been proposed and elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the Senior Managers and Governors of their school.
Every year our children elect a new team to the school council. They spend time meeting each week to discuss any issues raised by the pupils and raise money for new school resources.
