In this programme pupils at West Bridgford Primary School explain their school council and advise pupil viewers on how to set up their own school council.
The school has an active council with wide ranging roles and responsibilities. There are established protocols, decided by a committee, which also maintains minutes and files. Each week council members visit each class and create an agenda based on issues raised by individual pupils across the school. These issues are then opened for discussion to the school during council.
Any points raised in the meetings are noted in minutes and if further action is required this is discussed by the committee and the headteacher before being taken further. Each class also has its own class council, which also follows established protocols (adapted to suit each class).
