Each year, every child in Year 2 – Year 6 is invited to apply for the role of school councillor. In this role, they come together with other councillors to represent and share the interests, opinions and concerns of their class within the school.

The School Council works with Mrs Brown and Mrs Abbott to bring about positive changes to our school; changes that should, first and foremost, enhance the experiences of all children at Allanson Street Primary School.

The councillors take part in weekly council meetings where all children are encouraged to participate equally, proposing ideas and listening to others, and to take forward new initiatives to their respective classes.

The object of our School council is to help children and young people to:

· Let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them at Allanson Street.

· Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place.

· Develop life skills through participation, listening, understanding and respecting views of others.
