At Friar’s Grove it is important that pupils have a real say in issues that affect them and know that their thoughts, ideas and opinions matter. Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can learn about democracy, voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. Our school council has a representative from each class who has been elected by their peers. The school council meets once a fortnight to discuss a range of ideas and to make decisions. After meetings, school council members report back to their classes in class council meetings, giving all children a chance to add their ideas and opinions and to ensure that as many pupil voices are heard as possible. The discussions held in class council meetings are then shared with the School council at the next meeting. This half term, the school council have chosen to discuss and implement ways in which our school can become a greener school.
