SCHOOL COUNCIL

Introducing the Council

Mount Pleasant School Council
Mount Pleasant School Council 2015/16

The School Council consists of one boy and one girl from each class from Year 1 to Year 5.

The representatives from Year 6 consist of the Head Boy and Girl and the deputies.

Each member is voted onto the School Council through a ballot.

Our role is to take children's ideas and present them at the School Council meetings. We have a responsibility to represent our Year groups and we take this role seriously.

School Council reps go to meetings and discuss things about our school and its environment. We also help to decide which charities the school will support. Currently we are sponsoring two children through Action Aid.

In 2008 we introduced 'pupil voice' slips so that children have a way to clearly communicate with their reps weekly and not just during formal sessions. This has been very effective and we will continue this work.
