Christ the King School Council
What is the School Council?
Pupil voice and upholding British Values are very important to us at Christ the King Catholic Primary School. In response to this, we have a School Council. A school council is a group of pupils within our school who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views.
What do they do?
Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. This includes improvements to the school and the way we do things at Christ the King as well leading whole school initiatives.
What happens during a meeting?
During School Council meetings everyone gets a chance to speak and we vote democratically and agree on actions to be taken. Within the council, children hold a range of posts and support the Governance of the school. They are ambassadors for our work here at Christ the King. Glossary
