School Council

Malden Parochial's School Council

 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.


Our School Council encourages our children to:

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


Our School Council should encourage pupils to develop:

A sense of ownership over policy and practice

A consensus over school issues such as behaviour

A responsibility towards the school community and environment


Our School Council will give pupils the experience of:

Planning, organising and monitoring school-based projects

Speaking and listening skills

Debating skills

Mediation and negotiating skills
