Want to find our more about being a school council member?
Read the brilliant piece below written by Frazer - one of our school council members from last year.
Being A School Council Member:
Being a member of the Millfield Primary school council is a very important job. If you want to be school council member you will have to:
- Be very polite
- Listen and speak when you need to
- Be brave
- Be sensible
- Come up with lots of good plans
- Think sensibly - but out of the box
- be really social and be a good role model
- Be a loud and clear talker
The privilege of being school council is that you and the other councillors can decide what goes on in school and on the playground.
You will have to attend all of the meetings, or as many as you can, because otherwise everyone will think you are a terrible member of school council. On the other hand you have to be eager to attend the meetings and remember when the next meeting is on.
You have to watch the time because mainly the meetings are at 2.30pm in the afternoon so that means you will have not that much time to gather your coat and bag.
Also, inform your teacher about the time and date of the meeting or you might turn up on a Saturday morning wearing your pyjamas! So make sure the date and time is correct
What is a School Council?
A school council is group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and help to improve their school.
At Millfield we have a School Council that meet to discuss our school. This is their page on our web site that records the work they have done and the meetings they have had.
School Council members are elected by other pupils. When there are important decisions to be made, members of the School Council vote on these decisions with the majority vote winning
Pupils who feel they have the right qualities to be a good member of the School Council and who wanted to stand for election had to write a short speech saying why they think they would make a good school council representative.
Their fellow pupils then vote for their preferred candidate to represent them.
