We want Torre’s pupils to have a say in what happens at our school and to make it a happy, safe and forward thinking community. Through the school council, we hope that the children at Torre know that they are listened to and that each individual has an important role to play in our school.
The school council at Torre has been running since 1993 and has been instrumental in making many improvements.
What is a School Council?
A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all children to improve their school. Each year voting takes place for the children who have campaigned to be elected to the School Council.
What do we do?
The school council meets to discuss and sort out problems and ideas. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
Members of the school council are responsible for gathering ideas and representing the views of their class mates.
How our school council is elected
We want our children to take an active part in being citizens of the school community, whilst learning about the fundamental British value of democracy. At the beginning of each school year we hold elections. Any child from year one to six can nominate themselves. They write a manifesto and hust to encourage children in their class to vote for them. There is one representative from each class. Reception is represented by a year six child.
The timetable for elections this year were:
Monday 27th September – Wednesday 29th September – Hustings in class
Wednesday 29th September – Secret ballot in class.
Friday 1st October - New School Council representatives announced.
