School Council

School Council elections

In September 2018, in keeping with the British values of democracy (making responsible choices), the rule of law (following school rules) and tolerance and mutual respect (being positive to other people and listening to their ideas) – we held School Council elections at Christ Church C of E First School.

Children who wanted to be a School Councillor were invited to tell their classmates why they would be good at the job and to share some of their own ideas for improving our school.

Why do we have a School Council?

Because children’s voices matter. It is important for grown-ups to listen to what children have to say so that, together, we can make sure that Christ Church is a safe and happy place for everyone.

What do School Councillors do?

Lots! Amongst other things, they:

  • listen to the suggestions and concerns of other children and then bring them to meetings so the Headteacher, Mr Kaye, can hear them
  • work with Mr Kaye to make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon
  • encourage all children in the school to share their ideas, gifts, talents and energy in order improve the school for everyone
  • plan ways to fill playtimes and lunchtimes with fun physical activities, and make sure no one feels left out or lonely
  • help adults at school to organise fundraising activities for our PTFA and charities
  • think of ways to help us reduce, reuse and recycle to save the planet
  • represent our school at Pupil Parliament events in Frome and Somerset
  • write to politicians and business leaders to share their thoughts about how we can improve our community, country and the wider world

How often are School Council meetings held?

Once every two weeks School Councillors meet with Mr Kaye, Headteacher.
