The children at Eythorne Elvington are at the heart of our school community. We highly value their thoughts, ideas and opinions. Our School Council is one way of ensuring that the voice of the children is heard and make an impact on the life and development of the school.
Class representatives from each class are elected by their peers twice a year. In their roles as school councillors they:
- Bring forward new ideas on how we can improve our school and local environment
- Discuss issues raised in their classes, resolve problems and find solutions in order that all children are treated fairly
- Lead projects in the school where children’s input is needed, acting as liaison between the classes and school.
School council meetings are held regularly with a member of the school leadership team, and children are given the opportunity to lead discussions.
