School Council

Welcome to Plascrug’s School Council web page

Information about the School Council

Pupils at the school are represented by a School’s Council. A new council is elected annually in September.

There are class councillors from Year 2 to Year 6 classes. There are two representative from each class, i.e. there are four pupils to each year group. Classes propose their nominees and a secret ballot is then held to vote for the class representatives. The elected councillors then choose their chairperson and vice-chair person, a secretary and a treasurer. They are given a small budget from the school which they have to manage. Regular meetings are held throughout the year where various issues are discussed and resolutions are made.

The School’s Council present a report to the Governing Body each term and occasionally councillors are invited to attend GB meetings to discuss issues at greater depths. Part of their role is to meet prospective interviewees and feedback to the Governing Body. 

The School’s Council officials have regular meetings with the Headteacher to discuss matters that have arisen in meetings and to put forward requests, ideas and solutions to problems that arise in their everyday school life.

The School Council has a very important role to play in the general well-being of the school and it’s pupils.
