The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the running of the school. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

As a school council we have certain issues that we work to try and improve.
To encourage a fit and healthy lifestyle for all.
To raise money for new play equipment to be used at playtimes and lunchtimes.
To help promote safe and considerate parking outside our school.
To become more involved in the local community.
Your council reps will be asking for ideas to help!
