A nurturing environment, inspiring achievement
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.
