Pastoral ~ The School Council

The School Council members are elected at the beginning of the school year. In September pupils put themselves forward to become representatives of their Year groups and are then voted in by their peers. Two pupils represent each Year group. These representatives will then work to support and act on behalf of their fellow year group members.

The School Council meets with an Assistant Head of Year every two weeks to discuss any issues they may have. General school matters will also be discussed at these meetings.

Once every half term The School Council meets with The Headteacher to discuss ideas, to establish changes and to support with the progression of school life.

The School Council promotes and campaigns for nominations for the Jack Petchey Award. They are responsible for voting for the most worthy winners of this award. This contributes to school life as the award money is invested into buying equipment and resources for the school.
