What is a School Council?
- A school council represents the views of all pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
- A school council helps to make changes and improvements, and tries to make the school a nicer place for everyone.
Election Process and Democracy
- At George Eliot, every class chooses one representative to be a member of the school council.
- Voting for council members takes place at the beginning of each school term.
- Before they are voted for, candidates have to create a poster and give a speech to their class explaining why they want to be on the council.
- Afterwards all the votes are counted and the person with the most votes becomes the school council representative.
The School Council representatives for Summer Term are:
Reception - Izzy and Lorena
Year 1 - Karim M
Year 2 - Millie and Zayn
Year 3 - Aaliyah
Year 4 - Mohammed F and Fahad
Year 5 - Intisar and Ella
Year 6 - Emmanuel and Aryam
Over the course of the Summer term the school councillors will be helping to support their classes to complete the volunteering task that has been assigned to them.
We will also be focusing on the Value of Equality. We will work on how we can create an environment where everyone feels safe, respected and is treated fairly.
