Why do we have a School Governors?

We have a School Class Governors because we value all pupils’ ideas and opinions. Our School Council enables every pupil to enjoy and feel empowered by their education and school life. All children are able to voice their feelings and be heard; this allows everyone to play an active role in making decisions and changing school for the better.


What do the School Class Governors do?

Each year school representatives are elected by their peers to represent their year group and form our School Class Governors. This allows everybody to have a chance to be elected. The School Governor representatives meet regularly to discuss issues and democratically make decisions to help get pupils what they want or need.

The School Governors have contributed to changes to our behaviour policy, helped to construct a new Team Points system and affected change for improved play and lunch times.  In addition to this they decide which fundraising events they want school to support gaining feedback from all pupils. Class governors have provided suggestions for developing a love of reading culture including Reading Plus we have implemented throughout KS 2.
