School Council


Our school council for 2019/20 has been appointed!

The School Council is an important part of our school’s ethos.  We are committed to hearing the ‘voice’ of our pupils.  The Governors and staff believe that the council is an excellent way of tapping into our children’s views and new ideas.  As a school we believe that children’s potential should never be underestimated.  Therefore, our children will be leaders in not only the future but also today!

The elected members of the school council will be invited to share their ideas on some key issues:

  • Pastoral Care & Wellbeing
  • Positive Behaviour
  • Learning & Teaching
  • Play & Extra- Curricular Activities
  • Local & Global Environmental Work
  • Shared Education & Global Links

They will also take part in assemblies designed to teach pupils our key safety and pastoral care messages. Senior Leadership will also meet with the council so that pupils can share their ideas or/and ask questions.  They will also have the opportunity to meet our Chair of Governors, Mrs D. Baillie.
