School Council

We have a very strong ‘pupil voice’ at Coalway; even the youngest children at our school know that they will be listened to and that their views are very important!

In Term 1, after reading the job description carefully, Year Two pupils if they wish can apply to become members. Each class then selects two or three Year Two pupils to represent them on the pupil council. Our representatives attend meetings with the rest of the pupil leadership team and also hold meetings of their own in each class. They ask for their peers views on a wide range of issues, feedback to the rest of the council and the school leadership team and decide on a course of action to make improvements. They then work with their teachers to implement some changes and measure how successful they have been by talking to all the children in school again.

Coalway Community Infant School Council is very effective at making sure our school is the best it can be whilst at the same time their main aim is also to make it even better!
