Why do we have a School Council?
The School Council was established as a means to give our children a voice. We care about what our children think and want to take their opinions in to account when we are looking at making changes or developing aspects of our school. We want our children to feel valued and involved in the decision-making process as much as possible. The children are also great at coming up with ideas and suggestions the adults in school hadn’t even thought of!
The school council also take the lead on our fundraising activities and non-uniform days. They have raised money for a range of national charities eg Red Nose Day, Children in Need as well as local charities like the Selby Food Bank.
How do you become a member of the School Council?
Our School Council elections happen at the start of each school year. Children who would like to be on the council deliver an election speech to their class and then each class elects 2 children to represent them by voting in a secret ballot – living out our British Value of democracy.
The School Council is supported by Mrs Sanders and they hold a meeting every other week.
You can easily spot our School Councillors out and about around school with their badges on.
