At Holy Family we are proud to have pupil representatives on our School Council that help to make our school a great place for pupils and staff to work together and share ideas. These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. Through School Council all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution. Pupils at Holy Family know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.
At the start of every academic year, in Years 2 to 6, children who would like to be a member of the school council prepare and present a short speech to their class outlining their suitability for the position. Children then take part in a democratic vote and 2 or 3 representatives are elected from each class. Pupil voice from Reception and Year 1 is passed on to School Council following circle time discussions with teachers.
Meetings are held every fortnight and issues relating to school, the wider community and supporting international causes are discussed.
