At Ryders Green we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in class and school council meetings. These councils are in place so pupils of Ryders Green have a voice and are involved in the decisions about the school.
All pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their peers to reach a democratic solution through their class council. Wider issues that arise are then discussed in the school council meeting that ensures many voices are heard.
What do the School Council do?
- The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.

Friday’s school council meeting took place at 1:20. We have been assigned the task of presenting to our head teacher and the governors ‘How Kagan helps us to learn’. Throughout the meeting we discussed our ideas on ways in which we could do this. The decision was made to generate a set of questions that we would ask our classes so that we can find out what other classes do and take notes, we will feed this back at our next meeting on Friday 2nd February. We are very excited about our task and look forward to presenting it to Miss Blackmore and the governors.
Week commencing 05.02.18
During school council today we discussed the responses that we had received from our classes to the question we came up with based on ‘kagan’. The responses were very positive and we are very excited about presenting our finding to Mrs Blackmore and other members of staff. Our next meeting will involve putting our presentation together.
