What is the School Council?
At Tyndale Primary, we believe that pupils should have a voice and be involved in decisions about the school which affect them. Through the School Council, pupils gain the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions about issues which affect them and discuss how they can contribute to the school and local community improvements . At Tyndale Primary, the pupils thoughts and ideas matter.
We teach professional skills in the school council so we use a lot of business words such as:
Agenda - a list of things to talk about
Councillor - someone who has been voted for to work for their class mates on the school council
Minutes - the notes taken during a meeting so people can see what goes on
Motion - an idea for the council to discuss
