Merley First School

School Council

Our school council is a group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils in our school and to help improve our school.

There are two representatives from each class from Reception to Year 4. These representatives are elected by their classmates every term. In the Summer Term, we are joined by 2 members from our Reception class.  Each representative wears an official 'School Council' badge.

We meet every week on a Thursday lunchtime. Class representative’s feedback to their class as soon as possible after our meetings and the minutes of the meeting are placed on the School Council Board in the corridor Each class has a suggestion book. Children are able to write in their suggestions and their class representatives can bring them along to the school council meetings to be discussed. 

This year two of our council members have linked with other schools in the Trust to discuss bullying. In November these children held an assembly in our school about bullying and what to do.
