Children have a voice and at St Swithun’s School we listen.
Our School Council has representatives from Year One to Year Six. They play an important role in helping to make decisions in our school about our curriculum, special events, visitors, charity work and new equipment and resources.
Our School Council works with the children in their classes on a regular basis to look at a wide variety of issues, and then to report back to our Headteacher on projects they would like to develop. Sometimes Mrs Atkinson asks the School Council to talk about issues that the school wants to develop. The School Council gives our children a voice in deciding how our school runs, and how we want to develop this in the future. Each year the children themselves elect a new School Council through a democratic voting system.
