At St. Colman's we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.  These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through School Council all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution.  Wider issues that arise at Class Council are discussed further at School Council, this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard.  Pupils at St. Colman's know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter. 

Class council officials nominate themselves and then are voted in by their class mates.

The Chairperson leads the meetings with support from the class teacher if necessary – the longer term idea is that children can do this virtually unaided.

An ‘agenda’ will be in place each week which the council will work through and discuss.

Throughout the week children will jot any issues, concerns, worries or ideas etc. that they wish to discuss at the class council meeting.

At the meeting the Chair will raise the first item on the agenda and invite the person who wrote it to explain their point of view.

The Chair then invites the rest of the class to discuss the matter and reach some sort of resolution.

The Secretary then makes a note of what has been decided in the minutes.

Through this process the School Council will do their best throughout the year to ensure the pupils voice is heard.
