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.
