Statement of Purpose:
Our School Council is an opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run.
We invite two representatives from each class to our weekly meetings.
Councilors are voted for by their classmates.
A member of the Senior Leadership Team will endeavour to attend each meeting. It is the responsibility of each Councilor to ensure they express both their own views and the views of the pupils they represent.
Our School Council will benefit the whole school, both children and adults. We will display photographs of our School Councilors in the school hall for everyone to see.
Our School Council will provide opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings to staff as well as influence decisions that are made.
Our School Council will give the children of Cromwell Academy the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication, community spirit and negotiation.
Above all our School Council will give the children of Cromwell Academy a voice.
