Parkside School has an active and enthusiastic school council. Representatives are elected by their class at the beginning of each academic year and meet each month with Mr Wanless to discuss ways to further develop and improve the school.
What is the School Council?
A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) -Respect for views of the child.
At Parkside Community Primary School, our school council is a group of children that represents the views of all our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.
We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with our school council teacher representative, Headteacher and other members of staff.
Who are the School Council representatives?
A new school council is elected each year and is made up of 1 representative from each class from Reception to Year 6. All school council representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of each academic year.
