Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
The School Council is an important part of Trotts Hill and the children feel proud to be elected. In July, the class vote for their representatives for the next academic year. All children from Year 2 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to stand for election. After making a speech to their class, their peers vote. This is an important part of children’s experience of British Values and a democratic process in school. Children attend a fortnightly meeting with Mrs Wilby.
Our School Council is a member of Stevenage Schools Parliament and the Year 6 School Councillors attend regular meetings.
Unfortunately due to the restrictions in place, the School Council have been unable to meet as they would usually. However the 2019/20 school councillors were able to support the design of our PSHE curriculum by completing some pupil voice activities and sharing what they think is important to learn in PSHE. We also held new elections towards the end of the term and our new school councillors met with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to think about their action plan for the year ahead. We look forward to a productive Spring Term!
