At Chesterton Primary School, we have 14 school representatives across the school (2 per year group). Miss Storey meets with the school council at least once a half term.
What do our school council do?
The school council work together make improvements to the school. We look around for things that could be better and consult our classes with what we do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things.
Every year we vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and add to the meetings in our school council book.
This year, we have:
- changed the school values and consulted all children and staff on their views
- conducted a pupil voice survey to find out pupil views on behaviour and safety at Chesterton and discussed the next actions
- shared our views on play/lunch time games and lining up procedures
We are currently working on:
- identifying the #activelearners role in the school
- deciding on subject ambassadors
- improving break/lunch times
