Our vision is for all students to be able to contribute towards the continuous improvement of our school community.
The School Council is a body of students who meet as a group on a half-termly basis to debate a range of topics that contribute towards improving our school community.
These students represent the views of all the pupils and consider ways to improve their school. The school council is made up of representatives from each group to discuss matters about their education and school life and raise any concerns with the Senior Management Team and the Trustees of the school.
We firmly believe that young people have unique perspectives on learning, teaching and schooling in general and we encourage students to think about how to enact their understanding of human rights and responsibilities in practical ways. It gives them direct experience of debating and negotiating issues and seeing the ‘bigger picture’ of how the whole school is run.
School council meetings will be held on a half-termly basis. It is the aim of the school that the meetings should be run and led by the pupils with the teachers involved mainly for guidance.
During the first meeting of the council, a chairperson of the student council will need to be elected and will be responsible for the running of the student council. This role will be decided democratically using a secret ballot system by the School Council.
