Members of the school council meet half termly to discuss feedback raised, which is then presented to the SLT team at George Green’s, to discuss how to drive changes forward.
Topics usually centre on rewards, improving lunchtimes, ensuring positive behaviour around school and how to improve learning in the classroom.
Article 12 of the UNCRC says that children and young people have the human right to have opinions and for these opinions to matter.
These are the minutes sent out to classes after the class reps have met with the school council.
