School Council Crew

What student councils are about

  • Giving every student in the school a chance to say what they want, knowing that they will be listened to and that their views will be considered.
  • Sharing and exchanging ideas with students in other forms and other years.
  • Involving students in making decisions about how the school is run.
  • Giving students experience of creating new initiatives, solving problems and achieving their goals.
  • Respecting students in their own education and improving the school community.
  • Involving the whole school community in developing shared standards of behaviour and maintaining them
  • Making sure that students have the right to express their views, and to have their views taken into account, on matters that concern their life in school.
  • Ensuring that the school is a happy one for all students to enable them to learn to the best of their ability.
