Stopsley’s School Council: Helping young people to become active, democratic citizens.

The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run.

The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

 

Who can be a member of the School's Council?

We have an active School Council with a boy or girl representing their fellow pupils from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. Reception children will join in the summer term.

Each councillor is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected.

 

What do we do?

Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council.

Members meet regularly with Miss Byrne.

There is information on CBBC to explain a little further: http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/find_out/guides/uk/school_councils/newsid_3043000/3043161.stm

 

What have we done so far?

The School Council discussed and explained the Golden Rules with their classes. These rules set out how we behave in school and were launched in September. We have helped organise special event fundraising days such as Children in Need, World Book Day, Readathon and Comic Relief. We have also worked alongside the Mrs Winstone to achieve the Healthy Schools Silver Award.
