At Heronswood we feel that it is important that our children have a voice and because of this we have our own School Council which is made up of one child from each class.

A school council is a group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils; in order to improve their school.  The school council meets on a regular basis to discuss and sort out any issues which might include school lunches, playtimes or ideas for fundraising events.  Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, organising a calendar or meeting with catering staff.

 

A good school council is one that represents the views of all children effectively and gets things done.  These are some things that make a council effective:

  • Regular meetings
  • A council that is not too big
  • Class councils that meet regularly
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
  • Training for school council members
  • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific events or issues
  • Annual evaluations
