William Harding School Council

 We believe it is very important for all pupils to have a voice in our school therefore we have a School Council. 

What is a school council?

A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

How does this work at William Harding?

  • Each class has a school councillor who is ‘elected’ onto the school council by their classmates through an electoral process

  • Each week the school councillors  attend a school council meeting

  • The School Council Suggestion Book collects all pupils views from the school council discussion session held in their classroom and any suggestions made are taken to the SLT

  • The School Council decides on charities to support with fundraising and awareness campaigns and makes connections with people from the local community

 How can pupils be involved?

  • Nominate themselves as a school councillor and go through the selection process

  • Be an active part of the class school council sessions held in their classroom

  • Ask to be an observer of the school council meeting

  • Read the information board in the main school corridor to know what is going on

  • Talk to the School councillors regularly!

 Who are our School Council representative?

Pupils are currently getting ready to exercise their electoral right and our School Councillors for this academic year will be announced shortly!
