School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

At Alder Coppice, the School Council play a role in decision making.


Councillors are elected annually through formally held ballots within each class.  Each pupil wishing to stand for Councillor completes a manifesto and must share this with their peers.  The secret ballot then takes place and the girl and boy with the most votes are elected.  The achievement of this is celebrated with the whole school and elected Councillors are formally presented with their badges.


From Year 6, a Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary are also elected to help lead and direct the Council during their meetings, which take place on at least a half-termly basis.  These come from teacher nominations according to the strengths and talents of particular pupils.


Councillors share responsibility for holding regular Class Council sessions with their class in order for all pupils to air their opinions on a range of subjects: what is working well or what they feel requires amending.


In the past, School Council representatives have taken responsibility for Charitable events such as a Bake Sale for Premature babies, 20p collections for Midlands Air Ambulance, a Talent Show for Comic Relief and more recently, the Charity Market inspired by Children in Need.

Within school, councillors have taken a key role in dealing with issues such as improving tuck snacks, helping to improve the quality and range of school dinners and looking at possible designs and styles of water bottles which will be sold in the future.


They are a key link between managers and the children in school as they gain the overall picture about how children feel about particular issues and how they think that we can continue to make Alder Coppice an even better school.
