About us - School Councillor roles

What does a school council do?

The school council meets – usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort our problems these may include some lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events. Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning fundraisers and writing newspaper articles.

What jobs are there?

Each year, ever class will normally elect two representatives to be members of the school council.

The council will then meet to elect officers such as:

  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

What makes a good one?

A good school council is one that represents the views of all students and get things done.

Many schools have councils, but they are not all successful, these are some of the things that make a council effective:

  • Regular meetings
  • A council that is not to big
  • Class/ form councils that meet regularly
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
  • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific eves or issues

Who will you vote for ?
