Each year, the school council is elected democratically in the autumn term as part of our ‘Democracy week.’ Children who wish to be on the school council have the opportunity to persuade their class that they are the best person to represent them. Every class elects one boy and one girl as their class representatives on the school council. The Year 5 and 6 councillors then run for chairperson, supported by a campaign team to persuade people to vote for them. At the end of the week, the whole school community votes anonymously for the candidate they believe should be chair.
The School Council meet once a week in the Pupil Conference Room to discuss suggestions from the school community, share ideas and make decisions. This year, our school council have campaigned remotely! Here are their election campaigns:
