School Council

The School Council are a vibrant part of the school community.  Members are elected yearly and represent all year groups.

Following a successful school election in which all pupils cast a vote for their chosen candidate we are delighted to announce the Elm Court School Pupil Council:

  • Ailish, June-Marija, Uchenna, Rylee, Kevin and Dante

The School Council allows our pupils to learn about democracy, a key element of ‘British Values’, at first hand. Every year group is represented in order to ensure that the opinions and ideas of the whole school are expressed. The School Council will meet weekly and will be responsible for making decisions in areas such as:

  • the school curriculum
  • teaching and learning
  • improving the student experience including tackling any issues
  • purchasing of school equipment
  • school meals
  • planning trips and educational visits
  • organising cultural and charity fundraising events

As well as giving our pupil a voice and allowing them into the decision making process in school, our School Councillors will develop leadership and teamwork skills which will be critical to their success in modern Britain.
