The School Council was set up to enable the children here at St Mark's to have a say in the running of their own school. In this way, our children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work co-operatively for the good of others.

Our school council is made up of two representatives from Y1 to Y6. These members have to give election speeches to their class before voting takes place each October and February.

The elected members then represent the views of their classes at school council meetings, which are held every  three weeks.We make an action plan in the Autumn term,which is based on the areas pupils said could be improved on our annual pupil surveys.  We decide which things we could change and think about who could help us make these changes.
