The School Council takes an active role in supporting school initiatives, community links and fund-raising. Children from Years 2-6 are voted by their classes to be their representatives for a term, listening to and promoting their thoughts and ideas for the year ahead. By the time each child leaves St Andrew’s, they will have had the opportunity to be a School Council member for a term.
The School Council has three aims:
To promote and develop the pupil voice on a range of school initiatives and activities.
To forge links between the school and local community
To raise funds for local and global issues and purchase equipment to enhance playtimes.
The School Council will take an active role in supporting local and global issues through fund-raising and voluntary work. They work hard to foster links with the local community, organising craft events, teas and a variety of entertainment events throughout the year.
Alongside their community work, the School Council take a keen role in ensuring that the opinions of their peers are taken into account and presented to the school leaders.
