Parents Billboard: The School Council

What is the School Council?

The School Council is group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and work together to improve their school.  We follow a democratic process to elect our School Council.  If they wish to become a Junior leader the pupils must put their name forward. They then present their views to their class and a secret vote takes place.

Who are the School Council?

At BJAB we have 2 representatives for each class that form part of the School Council.

What do the School Council do?

The Junior Leadership Team  discuss issues that are important to the children.

They School Council meet regularly with the Headteacher to discuss their ideas.

They also have a higher level of input into the monitoring of the impact of the changes and improvements across the school and they contribute to the school self-evaluation document (SEF)

The pupils talk confidently about their role in setting the class behaviour expectations and are clear about the sanctions and rewards, understand the difference between right and wrong and the importance of fairness

How can you become a member of the School Council?

School Council Leaders must model our School Values and our Golden Rules at all times. They are allowed to take the role for 1 year but they cannot be reelected the following year only.
