At Holbrook we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in Class and School Council meetings.  These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through Class Council all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution.  Wider issues that arise at Class Council are discussed further at School Council, this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard.  Pupils at Holbrook know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.  Our School Council meet fortnightly and share their minutes at whole school assemblies.  During these assemblies they introduce a Big Question which is then discussed the following week during our individual in-class School Council assemblies.

 

Our School Councillors have the following qualities:

  • Good listener.
  • Sensitive speaker.
  • Trustworthy.
  • Helpful.
  • Committed.
  • Reliable.
  • Honest.
  • A good role model.
  • Able to work in a team.
  • Ability to share good ideas.
  • Ability to discuss and not argue.
  • A willingness to develop skills such as confidence, communications and negotiation.
