School Council

The school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. (Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) – Respect for views of the child.)

At Chalton Lower School, our school council is a group of children that represent the views of all of our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. Our school council members come from across four different year groups within school. They meet regularly with Miss Mudd to help to make decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.

We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives the pupils a forum to share these opinions with our school council teacher representative, headteacher and other members of staff.
