School Council plays a vital role at BCPA to ensure all pupils can have their say and be involved in positive change. Our sessions are a forum to voice concerns and discuss issues, ensuring the children have a sense of ownership over policy and practice.
Our School Council meets once a week and each class has their own representative, as voted for by their peers. They take whole school issues and ideas from their own class and feed them into the School Council, through the use of an ‘ideas box’ in each class. Also, they share ideas and decisions from School Council with their class. Decisions made within School Council can, and do, have a real impact on the rest of the school.
Throughout the year, the children are involved in a range of charity fundraising events such as national events for Children in Need and Comic Relief, or more local issues such as helping to collect food for our local food bank.
