School Council 2020-2021
At Bonneville, we place great importance on giving children the opportunity to develop a wide range of inter-personal skills. This is often done by giving pupils positions of responsibility within our school. One such example is School Council. This is made up of 2 children from each class in Key Stage 2 elected by their peers at the beginning of each school year.
School Council meets on a regular basis each term and the children are encouraged to share and develop ideas and identify priorities to help improve the outcomes and experiences of the pupils in our school. Those elected are the representatives of their classmates and the ‘student voice’ for the children at Bonneville. They are encouraged to communicate the ideas and opinions of the other children and share these with staff members to help drive the school forward.
This may involve making improvements to the school environment; fundraising to help a charity or to buy equipment, or running campaigns in school, highlighting key issues of importance to the children, such as internet safety or road safety awareness.
Our school counsellors take their responsibilities very seriously and are great role models for the other children throughout the school. Their opinions and ideas are hugely important to the life of Bonneville and help us to improve the experiences and running of our school each term.
