A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)- Respect for views of the child.
At Holmleigh Primary School, our school council is a group of children that represents the views of all our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.
We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with our school council teacher representatives, Headteacher and other members of staff.
WHO THEY ARE
Our school council is made up of 12 members, 1 boy and 1 girl from each class from year 1 to year 6. Year 1 and 2 children were elected by their teachers and Years 3-6 children were elected by their peers to represent them and their views.
They will be supported by Miss Angie and Miss Karima.
