What is school council?
A new school council is elected each year, with every class from Year 1 to Year 6. Children are elected by their classmates and share why they feel they will be a good school councillor. This supports our British values and democracy at Hale Academy. All posts are held for one year. This creates a central group that share their views on behalf of the whole school and makes decisions about school life. School councillors are then able to take our big questions back to their classes and are able to encourage others to share their views. We value the opinions of our pupils, the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with the Head teacher, Academy Council, other members of staff and each other.
