Conifers School Council

Our school council includes children from every class from Year 1 to Year 6. 

At the start of the year during RRS week, each class voted to elect their new school councillors.

“I have learned you are never too small to make a difference.”– Greta Thunberg

Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:

 

  • Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities

  • Prepare them to play an active role as citizens

  • Develop healthy, safer lifestyles

  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people

  • To have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others

Why do we have a Children’s School Council?

  • To empower children to have a voice

  • To improve the school according to the children's point of view.

  • To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.

  • To discuss and raise issues.

  • An opportunity to experience a democratic process

Our School Council aims to prepare our pupils for citizenship by teaching them about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school system. The School Councillors consult their class every half term to seek opinion, discuss ideas and to listen to whole class ideas.  Each class councillor then brings their class ideas to be discussed at the whole school council meeting.  The school council meet every half term.
