School Council

"The school council has a strong voice and pupils are trained as anti-bullying ambassadors."


The Bure Valley School Council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils with the aim of improving their school. The School Council and the democratic election process represents our commitment to promoting fundamental British values in accordance with Ofsted guidelines on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education.

During the first half of the autumn term, two children from each class are elected as school councillors. Every two/three weeks, the school council meets (with a teacher present) to discuss issues relevant to the children and their school life. Councillors return to their classes and hold class councils to obtain views and feedback from proposed ideas. These views are fed back at the following school council meeting.

Over the past year, the school council has extended school provision, assisted with the selection of the new head of school, led Q&A sessions with the leadership team/staff, provided ideas for improving outside space and helped to organise the Spring Fayre.
