What is a School Council?
A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.
At Carr Junior School we value the thoughts and opinions of our pupils and the School Council give the pupils a forum to share these. It gives our pupils a voice.
On our School Council page you will be able to meet the representatives from each class and keep up to date with all the exciting changes and developments we have been discussing in our meetings. We will also update you on how we plan to make sure these changes happen in our school!
The school council is supported by Miss Hudson and overseen by Mrs Hunton but it is led by the children themselves.
Meet our School Council representatives
Here at Carr Junior School, we believe in the importance of our British Values and, in line with democracy, we elect our School Council representatives fairly. At the start of each academic year, the children who would like to be considered for the role prepare a short speech to deliver to their class explaining why they want to be a School Councillor and what skills they have to support them in their role. Following this, the children in the class vote for their preferred candidate.
Meetings are held every Thursday and minutes from the meetings can be found on our School Council display.
