School Council and Transform Children's Parliament
‘Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you’ Joshua 1:9
The journey to become a school council representative starts with nominations. Children then have the opportunity to talk about why they would be the right candidate for their class, we then we hold elections. The school council representatives are voted for by their class peers and each class has 2 representatives.
We hold school council meetings twice a half term where the council representatives bring any ideas or views to the meeting for us to discuss. We can meet with school leaders and other members of staff to help improve the school and enable all children’s voice to be heard.
School Council representatives develop their personal skills, social awareness and they grow in confidence in Oracy, as they learn to express their views constructively.
Some of our planned projects for this year are:
Renewing wet play equipment for indoor use
Developing sports available at lunchtime
Developing access for pupil voice
Transform Trust Children’s Parliament
When children get to year 6 they have the opportunity to become a Transform Trust Children’s Parliament representative. This is a chance to work with other children from other trust schools on projects that impact on the trust. Some of the previous projects have been creating a children’s charter for the trust and an art project with the end project being displayed at the Transform Trust head office.
