What is the School Council?
The election of the School Council members reflects our British electoral system and demonstrates democracy in action. A new school council is elected each year, with every class from Year 2 to Year 6 represented. This creates a School Council that speaks on behalf of the whole school and works as a team to make decisions that have a positive impact on our school community. We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions.
At Canon Burrows CE Primary we hold regular class and council meetings. The School Council will collect views about the school from pupils, staff and parents and act upon these as well as make important decisions such as: decide upon the school’s harvest charity, decide upon which local, national and international charity to support from your nominations, choose the theme for arts week and organise special events or projects as suggested by you.
