At East Herrington Primary Academy, we have a strong school council. The children work hard to ensure that the voice of the pupils is shared and valued within our school community.
Each class elects 2 members to be school councillors. All classes from Y1 – Y6 are represented.
The school council meets every week with Mrs Dobinson.
Their role in school is to:
- represent the pupil community within our school
- act as role models both in and out of school
- feedback to classes about decisions made in council meetings
- inform the council of their classes ideas and suggestions on topics discussed
The School Council are always busy and enjoy helping to make our school a safe and fun place to be for everyone. Some of the work they have undertaken was to help plan both anti-bullying week and children’s mental health week. This work has helped our school to achieve the silver Anti-bullying charter mark.
