School Council and Y6 Ambassadors
At Burnwood Community Primary School, our well-established school council (led by our Ambassadors) represent the views of all our pupils. It gives our pupils the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school and wider local / national / global communities. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.
We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with our school council teacher representative, Headteacher and other members of staff.
Who are the School Council representatives?
A new school council is elected each year and is made up of 1 representative from each class from Year 3 to Year 5 and 2 pupils from each class in Year 6, who are also our Ambassadors. All school council representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of each academic year and we meet at least twice each half term. We have our own notice board and Dojo class so that we can communicate effectively with each other and the wider school.
If you have any ideas or areas you want us to look at as your school council simply post them in our box or speak to your class representative.
Our School Council aims to:
- Ensure that our vision, values and rules are reflected within the life of the school.
- Promote pupil voice and have an active role within the school community.
- Organise and lead whole school and class events.
- Encourage each member to be an active leader for and
- be effective in enabling equality for all.
