School Council

What do the School Council do?

The school council members take part in lots of activities, including;

  • Listening to the views and concerns of other pupils
  • Representing these views to teachers and Mr Webber
  • Coming up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions within their chosen department

Being a school minister is a very responsible position as children have to have lots of sensible ideas and sometimes have to attend meetings and do things in their lunchtime. However, it’s a chance to play an important part in our All Saints community.
