School Council


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.
