Welcome to School Council
At Birchington CE Primary, School Council encourages pupils to play an active and positive role in the life of the school and community.
Our School Council consists of representatives from KS1 and KS2 classes. The children bring ideas to meetings and then feedback to their peers to involve everyone. We meet regularly to share and discuss ideas and we work closely with other groups within our school and community.
Discussions at Council meetings help to develop our speaking and listening skills as well as our problem solving and decision-making skills.
We aim to:
- help improve our school
- have an active role in the community
- promote pupil initiatives
- help organise events central to school life
- raise awareness of local and global issues and raise funds
Our School Council Representatives meet every Monday to share ideas and make decisions. We are guided by our Christian Vision and School Values and we aim to make the best choices for our school, our community and our world.
Come and talk to us and help us to make a difference!
