School Council



At Whitnash Primary School we believe it is really important that we consult with our pupils and consider their opinions, ideas and thoughts, to help us to evaluate what the children like about our school and what we can do to make it even better for them.

Pupil councils provide a basis for active learning of important life skills, such as speaking and listening skills, teamwork, emotional literacy, problem-solving, moral reasoning skills, self- esteem and self confidence.

Pupil council experiences provide a dynamic foundation for learning about citizenship. Young people and children acquire skills which help them to become resilient to negative experience.

School and class councils enable pupils to have a voice and to understand that their opinions count.

"School councils can be a most excellent training ground in a responsibility for future citizens."

Professor Crick, 1998 Chair of the Advisory Group on Citizenship
