Principle of School and Class Council
Children must be listened to and their views and feelings acted on.
- Listening to and respecting a child’s views increases self-confidence, which enables effective learning.
- Children are key stakeholders and need to be consulted about the services provided to them.
- Children are citizens.
All children need to be supported in actively and equally participating in school life.
- Children can be a powerful source of support for each other.
- Positive pupil participation develops social, emotional and behavioural skills and improves relationships, attendance and achievement.
What does pupil participation mean?
Opportunities for children to:
- Become more active participants in their education, including planning and evaluating their own learning.
- Participate in creating, building and improving services.
- Make a difference in their schools, neighbourhood and communities.
- Learn from an early age to balance their rights as individuals with their responsibility to others.
- Develop skills for adult life.
