Here at Mossley, we believe that everyone is important and everyone is capable of having fantastic ideas! We also think that the most important people in our school are our children. Therefore, we want the children to share the good ideas that they have, comment on the way the school works and help us to improve it.
When there are important decisions to be made, the children need to be asked and offer their opinions and thoughts – this is the role of the school council.
Our School Council members consist of 1 boy and 1 girl from each Year 2 to Year 6 class in our school.
The council members are voted into the school council by the children in their class. They put themselves forward for the position, voice why they think they are suitable for the job and as a result, are voted into the school council.
We have a very active school council who are very keen to make a difference in their school and their local community.
Prior to school council meetings each councillor hold their own class council to discuss items for the next meeting.
At Mossley, both children and staff believe being on the school council gives you a chance to discuss things with other children but more importantly, we acknowledge that ALL children have the right for their voice to be heard.
The school council is run by our Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl who work alongside Mrs Harrison and Mr Heades.
