The School Council at Goodmayes Primary School play an important role in the life of the school.
In annual elections, pupils vote for 2 school council members who they want to represent their class.
Elections are then held amongst the members to allocate positions of responsibility within the council. These include the Chair, the Secretary and Treasurer.
The school council members lead class council meetings in which they discuss ideas and issues related to school events and school improvement. They bring their class feedback to school council meetings for discussion and action planning.
Some of the ways in which school council members have supported school improvement have been by:
- liaising with the school meals providers to make some changes to the school menu
- contributing to awareness of how children can keep themselves safe in and out of school
- involvement in school fundraising
- involvement in improving the playground
