What is a school council?
A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.
What does it do?
A school council does a number of things:
- The school council meets – usually with a teacher present – to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
Our school council is democratically elected every school year. It has successfully raised money for charities such as Toilet twinning, organised events such as our bake sale for Children in Need and helped with improving school life, such as dinner time.
