The Role of the School Council at Kennington CE Academy

The schools council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The school council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils that they represent.

 

Restorative Justice at Kennington CE Academy

Since January 2017 the school council and learning mentors have been taught how to use restorative justice at Kennington CE Academy. The programme helps solve problems between children and restores friendships.

Restorative Justice:

Restorative approaches are based on four key features:

- RESPECT: for everyone by listening to other opinions and learning to value them
- RESPONSIBILITY: taking responsibility for your own actions
- REPAIR: developing the skills within our school community so that its individual members have the necessary skills to identify solutions that repair harm and ensure behaviours
are not repeated
- RE-INTEGRATION: working through a structured, supportive process that aims to solve the problem and allows young people to remain in mainstream education.
