Why have a school council?

We think there are lots of reasons, here are a few;

We also help to interview new staff, meet with the governors and headteacher and also help our classmates have a voice which is very important to us.

We recently visited Rotherham Town Hall to meet the Mayor and our local Borough Councillors. We learned all about local democracy, the role of the Mayor and Councillors. We also got to sit in the council chamber where council meetings take place! We also learned about the history of our town.

We got to ask the Mayor lots of questions about her role within the council.
