School Councils are democracy in action.
The School Council of St. Anne’s Catholic Primary consists of two representatives of each class, from Year 1 to Year 6. The Council meets frequently, at least once every half-term, to express views and make decisions on school development.
School Council have been very involved in deciding what the school needs. Recent suggestions have included:
- Ideas for improving the area at the front of the school;
- The creation of a Prayer Garden;
- Suggestions for rewarding consistent positive behaviour and effort in school;
- How playtimes and break times could be further help them experience a wide range of sport and active lifestyles.
The School Council even interview people for vacancies in school. Candidates have remarked about how challenging this aspect of the selection was!
Representatives of the School Council are very much active citizens in our school.
