Kingstone and Thruxton Primary School is delighted with its excellent school council. In the last few years the Council has really grown in strength and confidence and has had some remarkable achievements. The School Council is run and led by the children supported by Mrs Welsh, and takes an active role in making decisions and suggestions on behalf of the children in the school.
At Kingstone and Thruxton we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in Class and School Council meetings. These councils are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. Through Class Council all pupils can raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution. Wider issues that arise at Class Council are discussed further at School Council, this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard. Pupils at Kingstone and Thruxton know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter.
The School Council is made up of two representatives from each class from Year 1. At the start of the Autumn term, each class elects two people who attend school council meetings. Meetings are held fortnightly and reps have a class folder with ideas, comments and concerns that are raised in class time prior to the meeting. They can bring this folder along to raise items during the meeting. An agenda is set and sent to all the classes to discuss.
