School Council - 2023 to 2024
We have had a School Council for many years now. We began the process of elections with an assembly to outline the what makes a good school councillor which was delivered to the children in KS1 and KS2 on Monday 11th September 2023
Each year the children from year 1 to year 6 are asked to complete a nomination form which will outline what skills they have to become a school councillor. Nomination forms were completed and each child read their nominations to their class.
Elections are held every year, to elect two representatives from each class in Y1 to Y6. Elections were held this year on Thursday 21st September.
The children in KS1 and KS2 will meet in groups to discuss the Big Questions. These will reflect the questions, issues and concerns raised in class. When elected the children will be given a School Council leaflet. This will let them know the dates of the meeting, time and location.
Class representatives, supported by their class teachers when necessary, lead Class Council meetings where they share information and ask for suggestions and ideas to make sure all children are given the opportunity to have their views listened to.
Our overall aims are to:
· Involve all pupils in decision making in order to give Every child, Every chance, Every day to ensure Templars is a successful school.
· To give all pupils an insight into how organisations, cities and countries are run by modelling and enabling them to participate in a democratic process.
The votes have been counted and checked. Winners will be announced in assembly on Monday 10th October 2022.
Change of date for next meeting to Friday 9th December 2022.
The next school council meeting will take place during the week of 27th February 2023.
Our Big Question will be: What can we do to support our link school in Ghana?
