Article 12 – All children have a right to be able to give their opinion when adults are making a decision that will affect them, and adults should take it seriously.
Our School Council aims to provide a real and resonating voice for all of its pupils. Its aim is to discuss ideas and suggestions that will help improve and develop the school in different ways. Every year, classes from Year 1 to Year 6 select 2 children to serve on the council. School Councillors consult with their class on a weekly basis (after each School Council meeting) to seek opinion, discuss ideas and listen to class ideas.
Each member of School Council wants to make a difference. Here are some of their thoughts about how they want to make a difference by being on School Council.
Each term, 2 members of our School Council attend a meeting with other School Council representatives from the other Gillingham schools and work on a join project throughout the year.
