Tranmere Park Primary School’s School Council consists of a representative from each class from Years 1 to 6. They meet at least once every half term along with Mrs Martin, Mr Sutton and Mrs Finley, to express their views, look at suggestions from other pupils and make decisions. The staff are always keen to know the views of the pupils and the outcomes of these discussions.
Recent discussions have included:-
Working with Mrs Finley on the homework and behaviour policies
Deciding how to spend supermarket vouchers
Helping the Sports Council improve playtimes, with more equipment and rotas so that everyone has a turn
The School Council also interview candidates for vacancies within school – a very daunting prospect for the candidate!
They do a fantastic job acting as ambassadors for the school on parents evenings, open days and when we have visitors.
Every year, election fever reigns when the new school council are voted in by their peers, a great introduction to democracy!
In addition to the School Council, pupils are encouraged to take on many roles of responsibility within school through Team Captain, Sports Council and Playground Leader roles, and as classroom monitors and Y6 helpers.
