At Alderbrook Primary School pupil voice is led through our very active school council.
At the start of every academic year, the pupils from years 1 to 6 have an opportunity to run for school council in our official elections. Every candidate prepares their manifesto and these are presented blind to their class mates. Election Day is taken very seriously and all pupils are asked to cast their votes at the polling booths. They are required to elect two children from their class who they want to represent them throughout the year.
Once the votes have been counted and announced the real school council work begins. Our school councillors meet every two weeks to discuss matters of school business. Meetings are held during lunch times and last around half an hour. During the meetings important issues are discussed such as deciding on the yearly charity, organising events, agreeing and writing policies etc. One member of the council will make notes and then all representatives will have time, during the following week, to feedback the information to their class. There are often times when the representatives need to collect votes and opinions from the class to help them make decisions.
In addition to this, every term some of the representatives are chosen to attend one of our Governors meetings to feedback to them about what they have been working on throughout the term.
