School Council

2017-2018

What is a School Council?

A School Council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

"School Council" means all kinds of school-based groups run by students, including student forums and youth parliaments.

There are 12 School Councillors here at Stanstead, 2 representatives from Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. We meet every week to discuss anything we believe is important to our school.  We have suggestion boxes in each class and these are emptied each week.  Sometimes we are asked by the Head Teacher to undertake specific jobs. 

We feed back to all pupils during school assemblies and each class representative feeds back to their own class after each meeting.

 

Pupil Voice

 

 

What targets do you set yourself? Below are personal targets some of our children have set themselves.

 

 

We helped to organise and create a quiet area children could use to sit and chat at playtimes. The sensory garden is now open to children who want to sit and chat calmly. Running and games are not allowed in this zone.

 

This term we have been working with Lauren, our school cook to develop our school dinner menu so that we use our voice to help make decisions that impact our school.

We asked all children between Year 1 and Year 6 to complete a questionnaire.

                       

Then we evaluated their responses and created a bar chart.

                  

Then we met with Lauren, the cook to share our findings.

Finally we created an action plan of what we can do next to improve our school dinners for our school.

                    

We are proud of the work we have done.

Here at Stanstead Primary School we pride ourselves on giving our pupils the opportunity to be heard by giving them a voice. The term voice refers to ways of listening to the views of Stanstead Pupils. The views of our pupils are imperative to the safe and happy environment in which they learn. We provide our pupils with a Ballot Box that provides opportunities for our pupils to express their opinions.

Every half term our School Council counts the results and then they display them.

The questions and the results of the Ballot Box for last term are. 

Do you set yourself targets in lesson and in school?
