School Council

Woolgrove School Council

The school council is organised by the Family Link worker and one of the Deputy Head Teachers.  It is made up of a group of children, one or two from a selection of classes across the school.

 The school council aims are for the pupils to have a voice within our school by,

Sharing good news about their class or individuals
Sharing problems and trying to come up with solutions
Sharing ideas about how to make our school better
Talking to their classes and finding out information to share

 Every September members from each class are chosen either by the class teacher or by the other pupils to represent their class at the school council meetings.

The School Council meet regularly and every member of the school council is given the opportunity to share what they have found out from their classes.  The school council think about solutions to problems or improvements they would like and how they can raise money or get support to put their plans into action.

 The children who represent their class at the school council

Develop their communication skills
Work as part of a team to make changes and improvements
Develop problem solving and negotiation skills
Grow in self-confidence and increase their self esteem
