The Holyport School Council is a group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with Miss Sharp. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. They take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, supporting school events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Our school council is elected annually by the other children.
Holyport school council does a number of things:
A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) Respect for views of the child.
I am very proud to lead our School Council. We have amazing children in our school who have lots of great ideas on how we can work together to make a better school. They do all the hard work and like to get involved as much as possible…making my job a bit easier! Our motto at Holyport is 'Love Learning, Love Life' and each member of our school council truly does. We have children from Year 6 all the way down to Year 1. We want to make sure that all children’s voices are heard in our school. We meet regularly to discuss ideas and events. I am very fortunate to work with a great group of children this year and I know we are going to achieve a lot for our school!
