At Chandlers Field we value the ideas, creativity and voice of our children. Through the School Council we gather the ideas of the children across the school. Our School Council will enable pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence. Everyone will benefit from the work of the School Council.
Every child votes for two people to represent their class - a councillor and deputy. The school council meet at least twice each term to discuss different aspects of school life. They will then share their discussions with their class and communicate the decisions agreed at the meeting.
The school held elections at the start of the Autumn term for Years 1-6.
The school council will meet once per each half term. The minutes are attached below. There will also be further meetings and working groups to carry forward the ideas of the children.
Attached is information from the Schools Councils UK on ideas on how a council can work across the school. Chandlers Field pupils will decide on our areas of focus as the year progresses.
