We value the children’s opinions and ideas and encourage them to be responsible members of the school community. All our pupils have the opportunity to raise issues which they feel are important through their representatives on the School Council. The School Council is a very important and valued part of our school community, whose members help to make decisions about aspects of the school. The School Council members are nominated and elected by their classmates. Each class has two representatives, one boy and one girl, and they meet regularly to discuss issues any important issues. The headteacher often takes part in meetings, minutes for the meetings are kept and fed back to the Senior Leadership Team. Each year new elections are held, and new representatives form each class are elected. The older school councilors represent the school as part of the Locality Youth Council and the Council members play a very important role in our interviewing process for new teaching staff, often asking very challenging questions.
The school council are helpful, nice and caring, they are considerate of others and good listeners. They try to make Lyminster School the very best that it can be for everyone.
