School Council 2023
Broughton Primary School Council Vision Statement
Our vision is, for all children at Broughton Primary School to be able to have a voice and contribute towards the continuous improvement of our school community. Definition and Ethos of Our School Council. The School Council is a body of students elected by their peers in a formal election setting. These students represent the views of all the pupils and consider ways to improve their school. The school council is made up of representatives from each class in Key Stage 2 who discuss matters about their learning and school life and raise any concerns with the Senior Management Team and Governors of the school. Broughton Primary School firmly believe that young people have unique perspectives on learning, teaching and schooling in general and we encourage students to think about how to enact their understanding of human rights and responsibilities in practical ways. It gives them direct experience of debating and negotiating issues and enables them to see the 'bigger picture' of how the whole school is run.
