The Pixmore School Council is run according to these principles - we value what the children say and listen to their ideas
The Pixmore School Council is elected at the beginning of each year with one representative from each class. The children self-nominate and are required to stand up in front of their class and state why they would like to be a school councillor. The children then vote for their councillors following a democratic process.
Each school councillor has a specific role, which they do in addtion to attending half-termly meetings. The Pixmore School Council play an important role in ensuring that any ideas their classes have are brought to the attention of staff and discussed.
The newly elected school council for 2019/20 met for the first time on 27th September and discussed a range of issues. See notes from their meeting below
The School Council has been very busy. To date, they have chosen golden ticket choices for the year, changed pictures for our Pixmore Learning Power classroom displays and held a cake stall, name the teddy and tombola to raise an amazing £300 for their three chosen charities, Epilepsy Action, JDRF and Mind. They children made sure that they shared information from their meetings with their classes before discussing the views of their peers as a council. All decisions were made democratically.
