Corpus Christi School Council
Promoting Pupil Voice
Our School Council is a group of children who have been elected by their peers to represent their views and opinions. The School Council takes on projects on behalf of the pupils, and is involved in planning, fundraising, liaising with the School Leadership Team and interviewing prospective staff. Having a School Council ensures that our pupils’ voices are heard, and that they too play a role in improving life at Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi School Council works hard to:
· Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible
· Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views
· Feed back to pupils about what is happening in school
· Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
The School Council meets with Mrs Lucas every half term to discuss ideas or suggestions to problems. Each councillor brings their class’s suggestion box. These may include ideas to improve behaviour, playground/wet play equipment, school clubs, as well as ideas for fundraising events or reducing our carbon footprint. Members of the School Council are responsible for carrying out ideas that they have agreed, such as planning charity events, school workshops, meeting with Governors or other communities and putting forward the views of other children in the school.
What jobs are there?
Each year, every class elects one representative, meaning there are 14 members of the School Council. The Council will then meet to elect Officers such as:-
The Secretary writes the minutes for each meeting, and shares these with each class councillor and Mr Goodwin, as well as displaying updates on the School Council board.
