Pupil Voice

School Councils are about involving young people in the life of their school.  At Grange School we believe that every child has the right for their voice to be heard and our school council helps to facilitate this communication, enabling young people to take responsibility for aspects of school life previously considered ‘out of bounds’ School Councils UK use the following definition to define a school council.

“An elected body of pupils whose purpose is to represent their classes and to be a forum for active and constructive pupil input into the daily life of the school community”

At Grange School, each Councillor has been democratically elected to represent the views of their class or  those of younger children. They are active participants, involved in decisions including school rules, behavior policies, developments in the school grounds, fundraising and charitable activities, school meals and any awards we as a school are working towards. The process of being involved in the school council helps the children  build important skills such as speaking and listening, teamwork, moral reasoning, self-esteem and self-confidence, whilst acting as a listening ear for children and working with the staff and headteacher to keep our school a happy place.
