Covid 19 amendment- school council has been suspended during the pandemic due to the restricted mixing and movement around school. We will continue to keep this under review as changes and guidance for schools changes.
The School Council consists of a group of children who have been elected by their peers to represent them and their views.
They have regular meetings to discuss the opinions of their peers and relay any information back to them.
Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. A school council can provide a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.
