School Council

Picture 1

Why do we have a School Council?

The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as discuss decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

 

The aim of Kegworth School Council is to be an effective democratic school council via:

  • Team work - participate, co-operate and problem solve as a team

  • Pupil Voice - listen to, represent and respect all pupils’ opinions – and in turn, be heard

  • Think Positive - contribute to positive and sensible decisions, improvements and changes for the good of the school community

  • Wise up – councillors learn new skills, gaining a valuable insight into being an active citizen

 

Who can be a member of the School Council?

We have an active School Council with two children representing their fellow pupils from Reception and Year 6, this year the votes were so close that Year 6 have 3 representatives. Each councillor is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected. (The members then elect a Chair, an Assistant Chair and a Secretary.)

What do we do?

Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes. They feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. Members meet regularly with Mrs Moore, who is the lead teacher for the School Council. The School Council aims to make the school a better place for each and every member of the school community. They strive to raise money, and awareness, of local and national charities as well as raising funds for the school. Each member of the School Council wants School to be a fun place to learn but also a place to develop new skills.

 

The School Council works closely with the School Learning Council,  the Eco Warriors, Digital Leaders and the School Librarians.

 

The School Learning Council:

 

The Eco Warriors:

 

 

Digital Leaders:

We are the digital leaders and we meet every Wednesday before school. During this time we get to explore new resources, prepare technology for other classes and we also learn new aspects of technology to use in our own classes.

School Librarians: 

The librariarians are on duty to help all the children every break and lunchtime. We have a variety of responsibilities to ensure that all children love and have the opportunity to read.

 

 

What we've been doing: 

Autumn Spring Summer

Elections in classes. Votes were cast in the Ballot box outside Mrs Robinson’s Office.
