The school council is made up of a girl and a boy from Rec to Y6. The pupils were voted for by their classmates, not as a popularity contest, but through the children deciding who would best represent them in the meetings.
The council has a Y6 Chairperson who brings the meeting to order, guides the agenda items and ensures everyone has a fair say, and also a Secretary who takes notes at the meetings.
They discuss ways of improving the school, tackle issues that are important to the children and look at ways of making the school a better place .
After each meeting, the notes are typed up (with help from Mr C) and given to the Chairperson. He/she will then copy them and make sure each class has them ready for next time.
Mr C will endeavour to post the minutes on-line to further help you understand how it works.
As a Council, they are still getting to grips with the whole process and ideas, but as the year progresses, hopefully they will all get better at it!
