School Council

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.
