School Council

Longview School Council .

At Longview,we have 8 children on our school council – one representative from each KS2 class.  Each child that sits on the council has been elected by their class-mates, this after each candidate has explained why he/she would make an effective class rep.

We have two meetings each half-term and an agenda is prepared beforehand and given to the children.  During the course of the meeting, a Year 6 child takes minutes which are then distributed to children and teachers.

Over recent years the school council has been instrumental in several changes and decisions in our school.  These have ranged from amending the school dinner menu to selecting play equipment for the playground. The council has also sent letters to all of our parents regarding issues which they feel particularly strongly about eg. smoking on school premises, healthy packed lunches and attendance.

This school year the school council will also be having an input into environmental issues as they act as our eco-council.
