What is a school council?
A school council is a formal group of pupils within a school who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views.
Why have a school council?
There are lots of reasons why Kingsfold have a school council.
Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. We encourage our school council to provide all pupils with a voice by sharing their own and others opinions. This leads to views being taken into account in decisions which impact upon them within school.
Having a school council provides leadership and development opportunities for the pupils at Kingsfold.
