Our School Council is made up of helpful, enthusiastic and thoughtful pupils. We listen to ideas from other classes and make things happen to improve our school.
What is the School Council?
The purpose of the School Council is to represent the views and opinions of pupils throughout the school. Secondary pupils are elected in September each year and a Chair and Deputy Chair are elected by the School Council.
Issues that might be discussed in the school meetings include:
- School equipment
- Pupil survey questions, responses and actions to be taken
- Playtime issues
What is the role of a School Council representative?
Current members of the School Council think that their role is to bring ideas from the pupils within their Departments to the meetings.

How does the School Council work?
The School Council representatives meet once a term during the year. The meetings are led with an agenda and minuted by the member of staff responsible for the School Council. Council representatives are given the opportunity to discuss any issues they have brought to the meeting.
What have the School Council done recently?
Slimbridge WWT invited the School Council to visit and make comments on the educational facilities in place. They also looked at how easy it is to access areas around the site, how easy maps and signs are to use and how some of the educational activities could be improved. On a second visit some of the suggested changes had been put in place and the Council members gave feedback on these changes.
What do the School Council want to do in 2017/2018?
This year we have had a very enthusiastic and vibrant group of students bursting with ideas and suggestions to improve school facilities and address issues affecting pupils. At the first meeting it was agreed that we would:
- Organise a whole school event for Kindness Day on Monday 13th November 2017
- Open a trial pop up shop on 15th December and it would be called 'Glade Gifts'.
- Look at what other lunchtime clubs could be introduced in school
