Each new school year there is an election campaign in September. If you would like to be nominated for school council you need to make a poster explaining why you’re the right person for the job. Each class are reminded of the roles and responsibilities of the representatives and the skills needed for the role.
Every child who wishes to be considered for the role then gives a small presentation to the class. This enables the class to have an informed choice about who they would like to vote for. At the end of September an election takes place by secret ballot where the epresentatives across KS2 are elected.
Don’t worry if you don’t get nominated this time. You are still an important voice in the school. The School Council are representatives of your class but they speak for everyone, not just themselves. They need to share all ideas and concerns.
We always like to keep those people who are really keen as reserves so that they can take part in some activities too.
Tell your class representative your idea or concern or put a note in the School Council suggestion box in your classroom.
Your class representative collates all the ideas and issues at the workshops and decides which issues should be put on the agenda for discussion at the next school council meeting.
Informal workshops take place every Friday at lunchtime with Mrs Day, our link teacher. Formal School Council meetings take place once a half term.
