Welcome to the School Council page
Who are the School Council?
The School Council are a peer elected group of children from Year 1 to Year 6 who represent pupil’s views across Oaklands School. Each class has a School Council member, chosen by the class at the beginning of the school year.
What do they do?
The School Council allows pupils to share ideas on matters important to them and feel part of the school community. School Council representatives attend regular meetings each term with Mrs Wheatley. At the meetings, children discuss fundraising opportunities, whole school issues, such as recycling, and raise any issues from pupils in their class. The School Councillors work hard to set a good example to other pupils in school and sometimes meet visitors and participate in special assemblies.
In 2018-19, School Councillors were involved in fundraising for Guide Dogs for the Blind and Comic Relief, shared ideas for improving recycling and reducing waste in school, took part in assemblies and even interviewed new members of staff.
School Council Aims:
To listen to and represent the views, opinions and concerns of pupils in their class.
To feedback key issues from meetings to their class.
To share ideas on experiences within school and how to improve these further.
To be a good role model for other pupils in school.
