St. Nick’s school council is a group of children who represent their peers and bring forward their views to improve the school, their learning opportunities and the Schools’ resources and grounds. The school council is made up of one pupil representative from each class from Years 1-6, and a representative from our CIRB (Communication, Interaction Resource Base). At the beginning of each academic year, the children who would like to be on the council make a speech to their classmates outlining why they think they would make a great school councillor. The class then vote and elect who they think will do the best job! Mrs Dorling is the school council link teacher and attends the meetings with the children.
The school council has been running since 2005 and our achievements have grown each year. At the meetings, we decide what we can do to improve the school and our school community. Each class has a class council meeting each term where they share and discuss the minutes from our previous meeting. Everyone can suggest ideas for their school council representative to take to the next meeting. Suggestions can also be added any time to the boxes that are located in each classroom. We have very productive meetings once every half term.
