School Council 2019/2020

What is a school council?

A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

Each class has a pupil on the council or is represented by a pupil who will visit their class and collect their views and bring them back to the meetings. The school council is an exciting thing to be part of for pupils and staff as it's about the children be involved in contributing to and making decisions about things in the school and the school community that impact them. It is especially important for our pupils to have the chance to communicate their views and opinions and not be overlooked.

There is now a joint SEN School Council within North Tyneside 3 pupils from our school council have been chosen to represent Benton Dene School.
