What is a school council?
A school council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way a school is run and to be involved in making decisions.
Our school Council
At Woodhouse West the school council is made up of a group of children from Y2 to Y6 who meet on a fortnightly basis to discuss important matters in school and opportunities for fund raising. This links in with the British Values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Tolerance of other Faiths and Beliefs, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect.
Why have a school council?
Having an effective school council, which involves the whole school gives individuals involved in school a voice. It helps our school develop into a caring community where pupils, teachers and parents/carers work in partnership towards shared goals.
This half term school council representatives are working closely with Diane Carr Play Leader to see how the play equipment can be best used and are exploring zoning the playground areas for use of new play equipment bought with money raised by PiPS.
School Councillors will be conducting a survey looking at how this will improve lunchtime play sessions.
If you have any other suggestions please let your School Council Representative know.
