The School Council enables pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. In keeping with both our school values and our British values, the School Council benefits the whole school because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

Who can be a member of the School's Council?
We have an active School Council made up from a boy and girl from each class in Years 1-6, who represent their fellow pupils. Following short presentations explaining why they should be chosen, each councillor is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year.
