The School Council is designed to give children some ownership of the issues that are important to them in their school.
Two children in each class are chosen by their classmates to represent their views on how to make the school an even better place in which to be educated. The School Council for this forthcoming academic year will be selected by their classmates early in the autumn term.
As members of the School Council the children commit to the following:
- I come to school regularly and on time.
- I am a good role model to other pupils.
- I will be able to attend the meetings.
- I try my best every day.
- I show respect to everyone around me.
- I take responsibility for my actions.
- I am proud of Dunstone and want to make it even better.
Children meet regularly with the Deputy Headteacher to discuss ways forward and to explain reasons behind certain courses of action. This is a vital element in our PSHE Citizenship Programme.
The School council have already been busy this year and have 3 projects to discuss.
- They will be doing a review of the enrichment activities at the end of each term.
- They have some money to spend and will be asking classmates for their ideas.
- They wil be working with other school councils in the WeST cluster on a joint project.
