The purpose of the School Council is to involve young people in the life of their school.
In a school of several hundred pupils, ‘listening to their views is easier said than done. Therefore the School Council is the structure which facilitates this communication, and enables our young people to take responsibility for aspects of school life previously considered, ‘out of bounds’.
The School Council at Middleton Technology School has been in session for eleven years.
What does having a School Council achieve?
Having a School Council can make a positive contribution to every aspect of the school community. It can also help to:
- Improve academic performance
- Reduce bullying and vandalism
- Reduce school exclusions
- Improve teacher-pupil relations
