Thorgumbald Primary School – School Council

What is a School Council?

A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

The school council at Thorngumbald Primary School is made up of two children from each class who are elected by their peers.
By each class electing their representatives it reflects the British democracy we live in.

What makes a good one?
A good school council is one that represents the views of all pupils and gets things done.

These are some things that make a council effective:
• Regular meetings
• Good communication between representatives and their class
• Smaller groups working on specific events or issues
