What is the School Council?
The school council aims to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Ospringe. We work together to listen to the voices of all the children at our school and look for ways to make changes for the better. Sometimes we have to speak to teachers, lead meetings and give feedback to the rest of our class. Our role is very important because we represent the thoughts, feelings and ideas of every child in our school.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.

Watch this space!
We look forward to meeting our new school councillors once they have been elected by their class in September!
We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.
Agenda - a list of things to talk about
Councillor - someone who has been voted for to work for their class mates on the school council
Minutes - the notes taken during a meeting so people can see what goes on
Motion - an idea for the council to discuss
To launch the new academic year, our newly elected School Councillors will be taking a look at our School Improvement Plan and will create a 'Child Friendly Version' so that all the children understand what we are doing to make our school even better!
During each of our meetings, we take minutes so that we can keep track of what we have discussed and what actions we need to take. We will share these notes with our classmates so that they are involved in any changes or improvements to our school.
