School Council


Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.  

A school council can provide a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.

Every year, in September, we talk about the Fundamental British Value of Democracy.  We hold class elections where we vote for class representatives.  

During our first meeting, we talk about what is important to us at Valley Road.  The children are concerned about the impact of the increase cost of living on our local community.  They want to help.  As Harvest is approaching, we decided it would be a nice to collect food for a local food bank. The school councillors will stand on the yard every morning to collect food for a local food bank.

Throughout the year the School Council will be working together to help plan and organise other key events in our academic calendar.
