Primary School Council

Some Reasons for Setting up a School Council

  • A school is a community; pupil councils help to make this community harmonious and good to live in
  • School councils enable pupils to make a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos
  • Every child learns to listen to others and to recognise themselves as a worthwhile individual with a right to be heard
  • Children learn self-confidence and social skills
  • From a young age, children are challenged to be responsible for their behaviour towards each other and towards their teachers and helpers
  • Contributing to their class and school community allows children to grow in self-esteem
  • Every child learns from their own experience how to contribute to society as a whole and what it means to be an active citizen
