School Council


What is a school council? 
A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. School Councils are about involving young people in the life of their school.
What jobs are there? 
Each year, every class will normally elect 2 representatives to be members of the School Council.
The council will then meet to elect officers such as Chair and Secretary. 
The School Council at St Thomas School has been running since 2002 and its achievements have grown each year. For example, a survey was carried out a few years ago to decide on the type of pet that would be most suitable for our school. This resulted in the purchasing of the fish and fish tank. The School Council also suggested which equipment would be best in the Key Stage Two adventure playground. The School Council was even involved in posing questions to candidates during the process of interviewing for a new Head Teacher.


At the meetings, the children decide what they can do to improve the school or wider community. They don’t just decide themselves what to do, their classmates put their ideas forward too through questionnaires and suggestion boxes.
