What is Student Council?
Our School Council is a student body who look to areas of the school that need developing or ideas that we want to take forward. The council meet twice every half term and recent projects have focussed on raising money, both for charities and in-house projects.
Our aim is to improve and develop our school, making sure that each child has a voice, and their opinions and suggestions are heard.
The councillors are elected by the peers in their class each September. This academic year, our councillors are doing a fantastic job and are currently working on lots of ideas including, fundraising for new lunchtime equipment. Our biggest project this year is to hold a school talent show, ‘St Anne’s Got Talent,’ to raise money for RSPCA.
Student Council Responsibilities
The responsibilities of council members are as follows:
- To listen to the ideas of classmates and fellow pupils
- To share these ideas during school council meetings
- To report back to classes following school council meetings
- To set a good example and act as a role model to others
Student council members can be identified by their blue badge, shown above, which they wear at all times.
Covid-19 School Council Delivery
- School Council will still be taking place but with some small changes during Covid-19
- Rather than meeting as a full council the reps in each bubble will meet with a designated staff member
- An agenda is sent to each bubble ready for the meeting each half-term
- Minutes and meeting overviews are then sent to our Council Leader – Jess - to collate and share with all classes across the school
- At times we may meet over Microsoft Teams as a full council
- We are ensuring all pupils have a voice and that it is still being heard over this period
