'The School Council is playing a key role. It is instrumental in communicating pupils' views to leaders and setting a good example.' Ofsted. 2016.
At Barnburgh Primary School our School Council is made up of two representatives from each class (not including Early Years). Each member of the School Council is elected onto the Council through a process promoting democracy. The School Council represents the views of all pupils and gets things done!
Our School Council meets weekly with Miss Johnson and discusses current issues that matter to the children. In addition, the School Council members are ambassadors for the school and attend special events in the local community.
Our School Council is made up of the following children;
YEAR 6: Ava (Chair) & Ebony (Vice Chair)
YEAR 5: Samuel & Kayra
YEAR 4: Holly & Noah
YEAR 3: Thomas & Oliver
YEAR 2: Annie & Lucas
YEAR 1: Annalise & Benjamin
