At Stockwell Primary, The School Council is an opportunity for our children to get involved in improving the school community as well as serving as a means of promoting the Student Voice. School Councillors are elected at the beginning of each year. Children decide if they would like to be on the school council and nominate themselves or can be nominated by classmates. They deliver a speech to the class as to why they would be a good choice for School Council. The whole class votes and the child with the most votes are chosen to represent their class at the School Council meetings. They attend termly meetings with the Assistant Headteacher and speak on behalf of their class to promote a better school environment. We see the school Council as a whole school introduction to the British value of Democracy.
This year our School Council have been involved in a survey on the quality of school dinners as well as providing a student voice for Ofsted when they visited.
