At Durrington Infant and Junior Federated Schools, our School Councillors have an important role to play in issues that affect the children and themselves. We value the opinions and suggestions made by pupils and encourage them to be responsible for our school. Each class elects a representative to become a member of the School Council. Through council meetings, children can put their ideas forward to ‘build a better school community.’ The School Council discusses the ideas with the Senior Leadership Team.
Minutes are taken from each meeting and the Councillors are given time to feedback to their class.
Being a School Councillor provides the children with an opportunity to learn real-life skills, take on responsibilities and be involved in decision meeting.

The School Council took assemblies in both the Infant and Junior Schools today. They told the rest of the school about the new 'quiet areas' in the playgrounds where children can sit and write, draw or read. The resources for these were purchased from the profits made in October's Spooktacular Cake Sale. Next week, the School Council are starting a new project - designing and making an anti-bullying leaflet.
