School Council

What is a school council?

St Mary’s Blackbrook School Council is a group of pupils, elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions, ideas and suggestions.

Our School Councillors listen to their peers and try to bring about improvements to our school that will benefit our whole school family.


Why do we have a school council?

We have a School Council because we value all pupils. Our Council enable every pupil to be able to voice their feelings and to be heard, this allows everyone to play an active part in making decisions to improve school.


The School Council representatives meet regularly.
