At Malden Parochial, we value the benefits of operating a School Council. The School Council represents the whole school and as a school we operate as a community. Through our School Council it is hoped that we can develop a balance and wholeness, helping to make our community a harmonious place to live. Our School Council work enables pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence. Everyone will benefit from the work of the School Council.
Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities
Prepare them to play an active role as citizens
Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people
Have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others
Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:
A safe, happy and fair learning environment
A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them
A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills
An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school
An opportunity to experience a democratic process
A sense of ownership over policy and practice
A consensus over school issues such as behaviour
A responsibility towards the school community and environment
Planning, organising and monitoring small projects
Speaking and listening skills
Mediation and negotiating skills
Class elections will be held every year. Two candidates will be elected from each class from Year 2 upward - one male and one female.
Two representatives from each KS2 class
An agenda is to be organised by the link teacher
The agenda and minutes will be recorded by the children in a School Council book.
It is a responsible job, and School Council Members will share information with their class, and get ideas and views from pupils by discussing issues.
