A School Council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. The election takes place in the school hall each year when every child gets to vote for representatives of their class.
The School Council meetings are chaired by one of the children, democratically elected at the first meeting of the year. They ensure that everyone gets a chance to speak, that everyone has their opinion aired and that the meetings run smoothly. Other roles include Vice-Chair, Finance and Secretary.
The School Council organises events for the children at Anson and contribute towards the development of the school. They are also responsible for charitable work such as Comic Relief, Children In Need and We Day.
They also offer their views on bigger projects such as the development of the school playground, the new Dining Room and improvements to resources in the school.
