Our Elections

The School Council helps children to understand the democratic process by giving everyone an opportunity to share their views and to take part in a vote to help make decisions. Our elections are held twice a year, mirroring the same electoral process used in general election; booths, boxes and ballot papers. Each class will have to vote for two representatives – 1 girl and 1 boy with the successful candidates being declared in our school assembly.

 

Our Meetings

 

 

The School Council meet regularly and are involved in making decisions about all aspects of school life. They achieve this through:

 

          1.Consulting with children in their classes, listening to their views and concerns and sharing these during meetings

2.Consulting with adults e.g. Headteacher and sharing their collective ideas to help make decisions with Miss Mayhew

3.Reporting to all members of school

School Council is also responsible for organising and running events to raise money for charities, representing their classes in assemblies and outside events.
