At St Nicholas we value the opinions of our children.
The School Council gives them a voice.
We believe that:
- Pupils have a right to be listened to.
- It is important that pupils are consulted when appropriate.
- A democratically elected school council provides a structured opportunity for active pupil participation in decision-making within the school.
The School Council aims:
- To empower pupils to participate in their school community as active citizens.
- To promote a sense of responsibility and ownership of the school community.
- To give the children a 'voice' through their council representative.
- To encourage children to care for school property by involving them in decision making processes.
- To foster and encourage positive and responsible attitudes and behaviour.
The council is made up of children from Year 1 to Year 4 who meet regularly and discuss issues with Miss Griffiths and Mrs Lowe, and, from time to time, other members of staff, including Miss Parker and the Assistant Head Teachers.
Many of the suggestions made by the School Council are acted upon and help to make our school a happy and pleasant place to work and play.
Currently the School Council is driving forward the eco-agenda within the school to develop in the following ways:
Please see action plan attached detailing some of the actions that will be taken.
