School Council

Through the School Council pupils have the opportunity to contribute to School improvement through the discussion of issues that are important to them by communicating and presenting them, to staff and other pupils.

The Council gives pupils a platform on which they can join together, speak out and be heard. It provides staff involved in decision-making in School with a very valuable consultation group through which pupil opinion can be gauged on a variety of pupil issues and it also allows pupils to gain experience of the work of management in School.

The School council helps build the school community by nurturing the free flow of ideas and opinions between pupils and staff thereby promoting communication, co-operation and enhanced understanding, not only between staff and pupils but also between different year groups.
