At Padnell Junior School we believe that every pupil in the school is able to voice their opinions and make a valuable contribution to improving the school for all stakeholders. Therefore the role of school councillor is an extremely important role in the school and one which is respected by our school community.
Each September elections are held to select the class representative for the school council. Children who are interested in the role make a short presentation to their class and then elections are held. Two additional pupils are elected to take the role of Chairperson and Secretary.
The team then work alongside Mr O'Connor during regular meetings collect and discuss the views of their class mates and work with SLT or Governors as required.
