School Council

Our  School Council enable the children here at Carlton Hill to have a say in the running of their own school. In this way, our children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work co-operatively for the good of others.

Our school council is made up of two representatives from Y1 to Y6. These members have to give election speeches to their class before voting takes place each October and February. This helps children to understand how a democratic system works. 

The elected members then represent the views of their classes at school council meetings, which are held every three weeks.
We make an action plan in the Autumn term,which is based on the areas pupils said could be improved on our annual pupil surveys.  We decide which things we could change and think about who could help us make these changes.

Minutes are taken at each meeting and shared with the whoel school community and actions clearly outlined.

 Each class has a School council time in class so that other children can tell us about other areas they would like us to work on improving.
After each meeting we have time to talk through the minutes of the meeting with our classes.  We also organise events like the talent show and take assembly sometimes.
