School Council 2023-2024
Our School Council
A school council is a group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the headteacher and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school.
There are lots of reasons why we have a school council. To begin with, Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.
A school council can provide a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. At Parkside, we feel it’s an important and useful way to provide leadership and development opportunities for our children.
Miss Tuezzo helps our school council to make decisions. We meet regularly to discuss our latest project.
Our upcoming school council project is: Fun- Filled Friday. (This will help us raise lots of money to spend on our initiatives in the school).
