School council

We are very proud of our School Council. They are the representatives of every child in the school and their role is to be 'the voice of the pupils'. In class the children discuss matters that are important to further improving the daily experience of our children. Their representatives then take these ideas to the main meetings where children from every year group in the school have a say about the matters that are important to them.The Purpose of the School Council
