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.

THIS YEAR OUR SCHOOL COUNCILLORS ARE FOCUSING ON;

The environment.  

The committee is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way Kingsfold Primary is run and help us to be environmentally friendly. The Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence 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.

Planting Trees

On Friday 3rd December National Grid and Babcocks came to school to donate and plant 12 mature trees onto our school grounds. The children are hoping that these trees will attract more nature to our grounds and also make the area look much nicer. Each child in school also received a seedling Christmas tree to take home and plant in their own garden.
