Nightingale Infant and Nursery School


School Council

The School Council serves as the voice of the children. It is an elected body consisting of two groups of children: those in the Executive Board (Year 2 children) and children who represent each class. Pupil representatives are given an opportunity to put forward their views about the school, talking about the things they like and also what they feel could be improved. They are given a genuine stake in decision making at our school. In addition, Executive Board  take the first agenda item at meetings of the school's governing body once a term.

The School Council has representatives from each class, meet with Jonathan Coy, Headteacher, each half term to discuss issues that have been raised by their class. When planning new whole school developments, the School Council are consulted – their ideas, views and opinion are sought. The children's views and their concerns are always taken very seriously. This body also fundraises on a termly basis to improve the areas of the school that they would like to focus upon. This changes on an annual basis and is voted on at the first meeting of the year.
