Aiming high and working together
Here at Eden Park Academy, we believe it is very important for ALL children to have a voice and feel as though their views and opinions count. The School Council are a team of dedicated, organised and proud children. The members of the council play a crucial part in the development of our school and each member takes their role very seriously. They pride themselves on making a positive impact and they can see that their contribution is highly valued. They meet on a fortnightly basis and carry out tasks in between meetings. School Councillors are responsible for ensuring that actions decided at meetings are carried out.
Each councillor has to ensure that the views of all of the children in their class are heard. They work hard to find ways of collecting the ideas and suggestions of the rest of the school by having:
- class votes
- a notebook to record the views of others
- suggestion boxes
The class representatives understand the important role they hold and must sign and demonstrate our school council pledge.
We, the members of the School Council, agree that we will:
- Listen to all suggestions and ideas.
- Feedback and discuss ideas from Council meetings to our classes.
- Always respect other people’s opinions and points of view.
- Always work together as a team.
- Set a good example, be reliable and responsible.
Each week the children share their outcomes in our assemblies and on the school council board.
We will keep you updated with all of the exciting developments.
