School Council

Pupil Leadership

The aim of Bracken Leas School Council is to involve pupils in decision making in and around the school. We help lead and direct fundraising projects and whole-school events as well as raising the profile of how children and schools can be involved in the wider community. On such matters, we discuss any points raised and vote on a course of action. Usually, at the beginning of the academic year, a representative from each class is voted in to office. The older councillors in years 5 and 6 help keep the minutes, plan agendas and chair the meetings. Other teachers, staff and governors may attend the meetings and get involved in discussions or projects.

It is a great opportunity to be involved beyond the classroom and as next year approaches and we anticipate our new councillors doing great things, we hope the pupils will take the school on from strength to strength.
