Our School Council is a democratically elected group of children from Red Class (Early Years Foundation Stage) to Turquoise Class (Year 6) who are actively involved in the school’s development.
Meeting regularly, children discuss important issues relating to events that are organised in the school and present suggestions from their classes for school improvements. This often requires organising meetings with the teaching staff. They are often given extra responsibilities at school events and are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas when promoting our Ashperton Values.
School Council members are given specific roles to enable us to run effectively and to give the children an experience of running an actual committee. Children are encouraged to take on the roles of Chairperson to run the meetings, Secretary to ensure minutes are taken of all decisions and Treasurer to assist with budget reporting and Marketing so that events can be published in school and in the community.
