School Council is annually elected, by pupils, in each class. Two pupils are chosen to represent their class. One week they attend a School Council session and the following week they lead a Class Council session.
School Councillors develop an understanding of their rights and responsibilities as a school councillor. They take a lead role in sharing the school vision e.g. Bobby Brain’s Magic Habits for Learning, Annfield Plain’s Big Promise. They take a lead role in key school issues; in recent years they developed and led a project to refurbish the school yard, they led the WOW walk to school project, developed joint work with the infant school council, met with visitors such as the local councillors, take a lead role in interviewing new staff and lead on surveys within class and with outside visitors.
This year they will also take a lead role in the development of an educational leaflet in the village.
