What does a school council do?

A school council is a formal group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the headteacher and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in your school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. "School council" means all kinds of school-based groups run by students, including student forums and youth parliaments. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, representing the school at outside events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. School councils are usually elected annually by the other children. A school council does a number of things:

  • A school council usually meets with a teacher present to discuss and sort out problems. These could include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.

The Queen's Green Canopy Campaign in Cherrywood!

This week members of a local Lions Club came to Cherrywood to meet with the School Councillors. Together we planted over 20 ‘Crab Apple’ trees in our School Field.  This was part of the Queen’s Green Canopy Campaign which is a royal campaign encouraging people to plant a tree to mark The Queen's platinum jubilee, and to help the environment. We hope these trees will grow tall and strong with our care.
