At Field End Infant School, we value all pupils' voices and expect that all should play an active role in decisions that are made about our school. Through our School Councillors, children have the opportunity to raise issues that are concerning them and to share ideas about how they can support our school community. It is the responsibility of each School Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of the other pupils that they represent.
Each year, two representatives from every Year 1 and Year 2 Class are democratically elected to represent their class as members of the Field End Infant School Council. This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to not only voice their ideas and opinions but to see democracy in action as a component of British Values.
The School 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.
School Council Meetings
Meetings are held every month. Prior to the meeting, the School Council Lead will send through the Agenda for the forthcoming meeting. This gives School Councillors an opportunity to speak to their respective classes and get some feedback to share at the meeting. During the meeting, all Councillors have the opportunity to speak and share ideas and will discuss action points to be completed before the next meeting. The School Council Lead will then share the minutes from the meeting and ask Councillors to discuss the key points from the meeting with their classmates.
