School Council

A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) -Respect for views of the child.

 

At Guilsfield School , our school council is a group of children that represents the views of all our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.

We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives pupils the opportunity to share these opinions with our school council teacher representative, Headteacher and other members of staff during assemblies

 

Who are the School Council representatives?

A new school council is elected each year and is made up of  representatives from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. All school council representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of each academic year.

I am very proud to lead our School Council. We have amazing children in our school who have lots of great ideas on how we can work together to make a better school.  They do all the hard work and like to get involved as much as possible…making my job a bit easier!. We have children from Year 6 all the way down to Year 1. We want to make sure that all children’s voices are heard in our school.  We meet regularly to discuss ideas and events.
