A School Council is a representative group of students who have been elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the Senior Leadership  and Governors of their school.

A School Council can propose and take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers, and be involved in strategic planning and processes such as the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and staff appointments. 

The object of an effective School Council is to help children and young people to:

  • enjoy and feel empowered by their education
  • feel that their school responds to their needs and views
  • have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them
    • have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place
    • develop life skills through participation.
    • Well Done to everyone who has been elected onto the Stormont House School Council for 2016 / 17.
