School Council

Our School Councillors are elected each year and hold their position in office until July.

All classes take part in voting for their representative after the candidates made their speeches. Well done to all those who have been elected. The new School Councillors will take over key responsibilities in the school and will have a say in the direction and improvements that we want to see around the school.

Our School Councillors are involved in the interview process for staff vacancies. Their insight and views are valued in the decision-making process to ensure that when new members of staff are appointed, they are to the right standard, quality and calibre.

Student council are also there to represent the views and opinions of the children in their class and ensure that there is a strong pupil voice in the school.
