The purpose of the School Parliament is to give the pupils a real voice within a manageable system and encourage the students to take ownership and responsibility for their school. At the same time it enables staff to gain pupils’ perspective.
School Council members represent all pupils in each year group at Saint Paul’s Catholic High School. They are elected by the pupils to represent their ideas and views.
Mr Harris, Progress Leader, explained: “A new school council is elected each year, with every year group electing two representatives. This creates a central group that speaks on behalf of the whole school and makes decisions about school life. We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with the Headteacher and other members of staff.”
“The School Council is a key component of the student leadership of the school,” commented Mr Harrington, Assistant Headteacher..” It provides an opportunity for all year groups to have their say in how the school is run and developed.”
Student Council Members:
Bryme (Head Boy)
