School Council

At Lewis Street all our pupils take part in the democratic process through the school council. Our school council is directly elected by all the pupils in each class. Elections are held at the start of each school year and each year group from Year 2 to Year 5 elects two representatives. In Year 6 the Head Boy and Head Girl are also School Council members and these are elected by staff members.

The council meet regularly to discuss a range of ideas and projects that are important within school, working in partnership with staff and governors on local, national and international issues. They also discuss matters that come directly from pupils' own ideas and concerns. The school council feeds back regularly to pupils, teachers, senior leaders and governors so everyone is aware of the impact of the council’s work.

The Lewis Street School Council is committed to:

  • Representing all pupils and including as many as possible
  • Taking time to listen to all pupils and communicating their views
  • Feeding back to pupils
  • Making things happen - or explaining why they can't!
