School councils are a brilliant way for young people to influence and lead on school decisions. They play a role in making important decisions that affect the running of the school. They are a great way for young people to play an active role in school democracy.
We think it is important for children to feel involved in decision making at Hendal Primary. From Year 1 onwards each year group has the opportunity to nominate two representatives to be part of the School Council. The School Council elects a Chairperson, a vice chair, a treasurer and a secretary and meetings are held fortnightly. Each corridor has a suggestion box to enable all children to put their ideas to the Council.
