What Do School Councillors Do?

As School Council representatives, we listen to the ideas of pupils in our class and across school who make suggestions on how to make Horton Park a great place to learn. We then discuss these ideas and think of ways of making it happen with the help of a school leader and the Investors in Pupils lead.

There is one School Councillor from every Year 1-6 class in school and 12 in total. We meet every fortnight. The Co-Chairs take turns to read the agenda and make sure the meetings run smoothly. The Minute Taker takes a log of all discussion during School Council meetings. The Minute Taker also takes the register as well as writing down what has been agreed.

What Are We Currently Working On?

If you want to keep up to date with what we are doing or have an idea of making the school a better place, please speak to your class representative. Be sure to read our notice board outside the Large Hall which displays the weekly agenda and meeting minutes.

Do You Want To Become A School Councillor?

To become a School Council Representative in the future, you will need to complete a nomination form explaining why you will be a good representative for your class. You will then deliver a short presentation outlining what you hope to achieve as a School Council Representative. After all the presentations, your class will vote on their preferred Councillor in a secret ballot. The person with the highest number of votes becomes the class representative.
