School Council

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.

At Sexton's Manor, elections for school council representatives takes place in the Autumn Term and the elected children remain on the School Council for the whole academic year.

What does it do? 

A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour 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, or meeting with catering staff.

At Sexton's Manor, the whole school council (or subcommittees) meet two or three times every half term.  Most meetings are planned, but sometimes they are impromptu depending on what the children would like to discuss. Mrs Talbot (LSA) supports the class representatives to write the meeting agenda, discuss and carry out actions, and write the minutes. Mrs Knight (headteacher) attends the meetings regularly.
