At Rodbourne Cheney Primary School, we feel it is very important for children to have an awareness of their rights and their responsibilities as members of both the school and the wider community. In order to give pupils a voice within the school, two children from each class are elected each year, by their peers, to become representatives on the student council.

Members of the student council are expected to show the highest standard of behaviour and attitude in and out of school, in order to act as role models to other children. They also get the chance to meet with adults within the school to voice their opinions and ideas to keep the school moving forward.

Student Council Members 2020-21

We have an active School Council with two pupils representing their classes from Reception to Year Six.

In Term 1, we will be seeking out new class council members for each class. Children will be putting themselves forward if they think they have the skills and attributes for this prestigious role in school and will then be voted in by their classmates after doing a presentation to their class. School council meetings may look a little different this year, but they will still be purposeful and will ensure our children have an active voice and role in the school. Our Year 6 child leadership team (Head boy, head girls and prefects) will also be supporting our school councillors. They will all be actively involved in community ideas and community engagement. We will be announcing our school council members at the end of this Autumn term. Good luck to everyone who wishes to take on this role in our school.

Why do we have a School's Council?

The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
