What is our school council?

Our school council is split into KS1 and KS2  to focus on issues particular to each Key Stage.   The representatives meet regularly to discuss ways to make positive contribution to the school environment and ethos at St George’s.  

Each class explored what democracy was, before voting for their elected School Council members for the year.

What does School Council do?

A school council does a number of things:

Our school council meets to discuss out issues and come up with ideas to improve the school and make it a happy place to learn and play.

Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning competitions and events, writing newsletters, or meeting with staff to discuss ideas.

What makes our School Council a good one?

We believe that our school council is a good one because it represents the views of all the pupils at St George’s and it gets things done.

To make sure we are effective our school council needs to have:

Regular meetings

Class discussions with representatives leading in their own classes

Good communication between representatives and their class

Training for school council members

Smaller groups of the school council working on specific events or issues

How important is our School Council?

Last year schools all over Kent joined together to have meetings with their local schools to discuss important issues. So now the voices and ideas of pupils from our school can be shared with others to make a difference in our local area.
