                                                    TORRE’S SCHOOL COUNCIL

We want Torre’s pupils to have a say in what happens at our school and to make it a happy, safe and forward thinking community.  Through the school council, we hope that the children at Torre know that they are listened to and that each individual has an important role to play in our school.

The school council at Torre has been running since 1993 and has been instrumental in making many improvements.

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all children to improve their school. Each year voting takes place for the children who have campaigned to be elected to the School Council.

What do we do?

·        The school council meets to discuss and sort out problems and ideas.  These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.

·        Members of the school council are responsible for gathering ideas and representing the views of their class mates.

How our school council is elected

We want our children to take an active part in being citizens of the school community, whilst learning about the fundamental British value of democracy. At the beginning of each school year we hold elections.  Any child from year two to six can nominate themselves.  They write a manifesto and hust to encourage children in their class to vote for them.  Two representatives from each class in key stage two, and one representative from each of the key stage one classes is elected each year.  Foundation stage is represented by two year six children.

The timetable for elections this year are:

Wednesday 13th September                               Let Mrs Wain know if you want to stand.

Monday 18th September                                    Manifesto writing workshop
