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.
