Here at St. Mark’s CE Primary School, we believe it is very important for ALL children to have a voice and to feel as though their views and opinions count.
In the Autumn Term, each class from Year 1 to Year 6 holds an election to find their class representatives. Children vote for a boy and a girl to represent their class.
Each councillor has to ensure that the views of all of the children in their class are heard. They work hard to find ways of collecting the ideas and suggestions of the rest of the school, for example by:
- Holding class votes;
- Leading class council meetings to update actions from meetings;
- Recording suggestions;
- Creating posters;
- Completing questionnaires.
Our school council is led by Miss Moulson, our Deputy Head. We meet every two to three weeks to talk about any issues that have been raised by the children in our class and to follow up on actions from previous meetings.
Make sure to check the School Council Notice Board in the entrance hall for our current areas of focus- global, community and school.
If you have any ideas about how we can make St Mark’s a better place, then speak to your class councillor today!
