School Council at Riverbridge

At Riverbridge we are extremely proud to have our pupils' views represented in Class and School Council meetings.

What is a School Council?

School Council is a group of children, who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to help improve our school.

What does the School Council do?

In the Autumn Term, each class across the school, elected their Class Councillor to represent their views at School Council meetings.

Through Class Council, all pupils:

  • Have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution
  • Can communicate whole school discussions through fortnightly meetings to discuss issues and concerns that affect the whole school, ensuring pupil voice is heard.
  • Take responsibility for checking the class suggestion box and noting down the relevant suggestions written and shared by other pupils to talk about at the next school council meeting.

At the meetings, School Councillors get the opportunity to record the minutes of the meeting, which involves discussions amongst the year groups and actions that need to be addressed. This enables our children to assimilate and use problem solving skills to ensure pupils across the school have pupil voice as well as have direct impact on their school life.

School Council and Anti-Bullying Week

So far this year, the School Council prepared Anti-Bullying week.

On Wednesday 6th November, Year 6 Class Councillors, including Head boy and Head girl, delivered an engaging assembly about Anti-Bullying week, highlighting the theme for this year, ‘Change starts with us’. What a wonderful introduction they gave us - communicated with such confidence - well done! Take a look at their Powerpoint below!
