Welcome to our School Council.
At Falla Park, our school council is made up of two representatives from year 2 to year 6. These representatives have been chosen by their fellow peers to share opinions and raise issues with the headteacher and governors of the school. Councillors take forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and are actively involved in their role!
The Falla Park school council aim to:
- Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible
- Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views
- Feed back to pupils about what happened with their views
- Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
The school council meet regularly to discuss issues affecting them and other children in their class. The idea is that the council should try to come up with solutions to these issues themselves and so become problem solvers. This may involve thinking of how they will finance something or plan how they would make the most of a small budget. In addition to issues that they put on the agenda themselves, there are also times when other members of staff and external people visitors come into school to speak to the council asking for their opinions and ideas.
By being part of the council children are improving communication with both their peers and also other council members who they would not normally get to work with. They get to improve their listening skills and reasoning skills also.
