School Council

At Chipping Warden Academy, we believe it is important for all children to have a voice and feel as though their views and opinions count. We want pupils to:

  • feel empowered to make change
  • develop confidence
  • take responsibility
  • make their voice hear
  • learn about democracy.

Our School Council is made up of a representative from each year group. Their classmates vote for them three times a year. They hold meetings every week and elect a chairperson and a secretary. Members feedback to their classes after the meeting. School council members can be identified by their badge, which they are proud to wear.

Recent activities of the school council include:

  • a survey of healthy snacks
  • meetings with governors and villagers to talk about proposed ideas for a village playground funded by HS2
  • a campaign to collect used postage stamps to raise money for charity

Lots more ideas are being planned for the school year. They hope to ask the whole school for their ideas via a survey, plan some fundraising and have some playtime competitions. Current information can be found on their noticeboard.
