At Fawbert and Barnard’s Primary School, we have a real commitment to listening to the views of our students, and the Council plays a vital role in this. The Council has its own committee structure. This experience is an important part of our commitment to prepare students for life after school and to function as confident citizens in society.
Fawbert and Barnard’s Student Council is an elected group of students who create and generate new ideas on how they can improve the school for the future. The council is made up of 3 representatives from each year group and is then subdivided into sub- committees:
- Curriculum and well-being,
Each sub- committee is led by a Year 6 Student Leader and the Council is chaired and led by the chairperson of the school.
Within their committees, students discuss how changes can take place and who is best to implement them. The Council then chooses the best ideas and tries to ensure that they are achieved in the course of the school year.
Being on the Student Council is an honour and enables students to take on a role of responsibility from as early as Year 2. Through their representatives, all students are able to voice their opinions about their school and be heard.
