The Brow School Council and Pupil Voice
What is a School Council?
A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. Our School Council has 2 representatives from each class from Classes 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7. We will meet on a fortnightly basis to discuss school initiatives and have an input into questions which are relevant to our school. Each Term we will be responsible for implementing some actions based on our school's needs.

We talked about the project we would be taking part in for the half term. The children will be collecting ideas from their classes linked to how we could make our playground a good place to be and the types of equipment needed. We also discussed how each class would deliver the Votes for School Question for the week and also the previous week's results during Monday assembly.
