School Council

Shree Deb

What is the School Learning Council?

At St Mary's there are 2 members on the School Learning Council from each class from Years 1-6. In September we were voted as our class representatives by the rest of the class. We meet regularly with the Deputy Headteacher. Our Learning Council is set up to involve children in the decisions made in our school to make it an even better place to be and learn in.  

The Learning Council is strategically led by our Head Boy, Olivier, and Head Girl, Lily from Year 6 and supported by our Deputy Headteacher, Miss Golding. 

Please click here to find a letter from our Head Boy and Head Girl below to the children across the school following their successful elections. 

All of the councilors are required to take notes of the meetings, and a finalised copy of the minutes with actions is distributed to all members shortly after each meeting.  It is the responsibility of each councilor in order to keep their paperwork secure for future meetings.

Once councilors have been elected they have to liaise between their own classes and report back to the full School Learning Council.  Suggestions and ideas are discussed and then the council decides which items should be written into the School Learning Council Action plan.

As part of their role as councilors, the School Learning Council accompany members of the Leadership Team in order to observe lessons and give feedback on the quality of teaching and the classroom learning environment.  This includes looking at how inclusive our classrooms are, and how all children are included in the curriculum, and how displays reflect the diversity of our population.

The School Learning Council meet a minimum of once per half-term to discuss progress of their action plan and any new issues raised amongst the school community. 

Remember! Pupils of St. Mary's – this is your learning council where your voice is heard.
