School Council

Having a School Council can be rewarding for the pupils and it helps to develop strong communication links between the adults and the children in school.

The School Council is a body of pupils set up to represent all pupils on issues that affect them, anything from what they eat at lunchtime to changes in the school building. We held a democratic election with a secret ballot to ensure all children had an opportunity to become a School Councillor. 

An effective School Council represents the views of all the pupils. Our School Councillors ask for the views of their peers and bring those ideas to each meeting for further discussion. The Council will work hard all year: attending meetings, discussing ideas, listening to others, producing posters, assisting charity events, collecting donations. They will also represent Co-op Academy Penny Oaks throughout the year, attending special events and celebrations.
