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.
What is our school council doing this year?
The next BDS school council meeting be on the 26th of February with a plan to discuss how children express their views in Annual Review meetings.
Our school council are part of a joint SEND schools council within North Tyneside. There is a upcoming 'Big Event' on the 4th of March in which will bring together young people and representatives from NTC, Health, Social care and Education.
Following that the next SEND Joint Council meeting will be held on the 18th of May 2020.
