School Council

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of children that have been democratically elected by their classmates to stand as their Class Councillor. Our Councillors then share not only their ideas but their classmates’ ideas too, and these help us to make important decisions that improve our school for the benefit of the children.


Why do we have a School Council?

The purpose of our School Council is to provide a team who can listen to the views of the most important people at Broad Oak, the children. Their views are extremely important to us and the School Council gives every child a voice in how our school can be improved.


Our School Council Structure

Our School Council is run by our Head Boy and Head Girl, who are elected by the pupils. Their deputies help and support them acting as secretary and treasurer for the council.

Our Senior Prefects, who are self-nominated, are responsible for running our individual committees: Curriculum, Finance and Environment. The remaining Year 6 Prefects support our younger school councillors in their roles and act as buddies for year group councillors from Y1- Y5. Class councillors are elected within each class. Every class councillor is a member of our full school council as well as one of our 3 committees.
