School Council

The Gordonbrock School Council is all about working together, learning about democracy and playing a positive role in the Gordonbrock community. All children have the chance to run in the School Council elections.  Those children who want to have the chance to be elected are supported to write manifestos detailing what would make them a good Councillor. They are then elected by their classmates at the beginning of term.

Gordonbrock School Council aims to support everyone to recognise the strengths of our school, find ways to make it even better and then, most excitingly, to make things happen! There are two members from each year group from Years 2 to 6, and meetings are held twice a half term with Miss Evans.  School Councillors lead class council discussions in their own classrooms and lead class activities linked to their objectives. They also bring issues that have been raised in class council to full School Council meetings. Representatives take their role very seriously and always try their best in all that they do. School Council members are aware that they are role models to other children in the school and use their position to support and develop their peers.

The school council notice board is situated in the school’s main corridor. The School Councillors are pictured so that all children know who they are.  Dates for the next school council meetings are displayed here, as well as ‘minutes’ from previous meetings. There is also a school council ideas box in our school library so children may add their own ideas anonymously, which can then be discussed during school council meetings.

We are also focusing on raising the children’s awareness of Children’s Rights, this has lead to our school receiving the first part of the Rights Respecting Award from UNICEF UK. In this, we have focused on the right to education and cultural acceptance, which directly links to our school’s learning about British Values. Some ideas which have been implemented from school council include:

  • Introducing the ‘Friend of the Week’ certificate which is given out to one child from each class every week.
  • Introducing recycling to each classroom.
  • Ensuring there is a ‘Buddy Bench’ in the KS2 playground.
