Broadford’s School Council is designed to promote pupil leadership opportunities and enables children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles, responsibilities and new experiences. It is a group of students from Y1 to Y6 who have been elected by their peers in a formal election setting.
Broadford Primary School firmly believes that young people have unique perspectives on learning, teaching and schooling in general and we encourage students to think about how to enact their understanding of human rights and responsibilities in practical ways. It gives them direct experience of debating and negotiating issues and enables them to see the ‘bigger picture’ of how the whole school is run. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life, enjoy making their voices heard and seeing the results of their decisions.
The role of our School Council
The School Council will undertake the following:
- Work with a member of staff (Miss Wyatt) to share their opinions on matters which affect the school community
- Develop creative ways to involve parents in the school
- Serve as the voice for the pupils of Broadford Primary School within the school and within the community
They will achieve this by:
- Listening to the views of their class and represent these ideas and views during School Council meetings
- Feedback key issues from these meetings to their class
The School Council aims to meet at least twice each half term to work on current projects and discuss key issues.
