School Council 2023-24
At Northway, we have an active school council that meet to discuss projects, ideas and improvements for the school. They represent the voice of all children in the school and do their very best to make sure every child's opinions and ideas are expresed in the meetings. Every September, each class from Y2 to Y6 vote for their school council members. All Key Stage Two classes hold elections and our council members are elected democratically. The school council is made up of two children from each class from Y2 upwards. Once the children have been voted for by their peers, their job includes representing their classmates by finding out and sharing their ideas, issues and views at school council meetings, feeding back information to their classes, representing the school in various ways and being involved in fundraising.
Our school council meet on a Tuesday lunch time with Mrs Harrison to plan projects and gather ideas. The council meetings provide an opportunity for the children in our school to share their 'voice' and to find ways to make our school and community even better.
Our school council:
- Learn how to work as a team
- Learn negotiation and collaboration
- Understand that all viewpoints are important
- Share information with their class
- Learn how to plan events
- Learn how to make a difference and constantly improve their school
We are very proud of our school council and we can't wait to see all that they achieve this year.
