How do I get elected if I want to become part of the School Council?
Elections for the School Council are held every year in the autumn term. If you have served on the School Council previously, we ask that you do not stand again, as we like to give different children the chance to take part.
At School Council election time, all children in Key Stage 2 are invited to stand if they are interested. You will need to prepare a short speech to persuade class members to vote for you! Share with your class all the reasons why you would make a great Class Councillor – perhaps you are full of good ideas, a good listener, maybe you are good at organising events and enthusiastic about our school.
After you have shared your ideas with your class, everyone in your class will be asked to vote. The elections for School Council are a good example of democracy; this means everyone in your class has the chance to be involved in deciding who will be the Class Councillors, as everyone has a vote. Our elections run just like the General Election that decides who is in government for the country.

This year we have decided to also include two extra representatives from Year 6.
In October our School Council met with Hugh Murdoch from Maun Valley Citizens to identify areas within the local community which need to be improved. The School Council will be collecting views from their class members on this topic.
