School Council

Our School Council

Each year, every tutor group will nominate students to become School Council Representatives.

A vote will then take place and tutor groups will elect 1 representative from each tutor group to represent their group on the School Council. Results are announced in assembly and each representative will be issued with a School council tie.

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of students who are elected by their fellow students to represent their opinions and raise issues with their head teacher and governors in the school.

What does our School Council do?

The Sutton School council meets once a month with a member of staff to discuss and sort out any issues or problems raised with pupils in school.
These may include ideas for school improvements, clubs or rewards.
Representatives of the school council will be responsible for carrying out ideas that have been agreed. This will include meeting with all staff including the Head teacher and governors.

Do you get out of lessons?

If your school council meets during curriculum time then you would miss some lessons.
This is arranged so that you don't miss the same lesson each time, and staff are asked to help you catch up.
