Who are we and what do we do?

At Mount Pleasant, the School Council plays an important role in making decisions on various issues which have a direct impact on the children. We have a say in how the school is run by discussing decisions being made by the Senior Leadership Team, suggesting ideas and taking the lead on new initiatives which we believe will make positive changes to the pupils of our school. Ultimately, we are here to ensure that all children have a voice and are able to say what they think.

The Council is made up of 12 students, who are elected from Years 3 to 6. We meet around 2 or 3 times every half term with Mrs Gamble to discuss issues or ideas that are important to us; sometimes the teachers even ask us for help!

As well as having meetings, we also talk to the other children in our classes so their needs can be discussed or passed on to the Head teacher. We keep written notes of conversations we have with pupils in our special log books, and there are also School Council suggestion boxes in all of the shared areas. This enables the pupils to voice their opinions when we are unavailable.

Every so often Dr Ali, the Head Teacher, comes to our meetings and tells us what has been done about the things we have requested. This is important because it assures us that we are making a real difference to our school.

 

What are we aiming to achieve?

At the moment we are looking into fundraising ideas, in preparation for Children in Need.  We will take charge of letters home regarding the event and the collection and counting of the money. 

 

Quotes from the school councillors
