School Council

Our School Council meet once a week after school to discuss any school issues that have been raised by anyone at Sayes Court. Every child is given the opportunity to stand for a role in the School Council.  After an interview with the Head boy and girl, two children are selected from each year group to form the council. It is very important that we represent the views of all the children and adults at Sayes Court. We aim to develop a sense of responsibility and awareness of school life led by a pupil voice, giving the councillors an opportunity to put forward ideas in assemblies and an opportunity to learn to become confident speakers.

The aims of the School Council are:

  • To listen to pupils thoughts and ideas
  • To actively debate and vote on various matters concerning school life 
  • To develop an understanding of a democratic society
  • To work along side members of staff to make improvements for our school
  • To create and manage projects to enhance our school

We have held various competitions and fundraising events, which have included: 

  • “Keep your library tidy" poster competition
  •  A "no smoking poster” design competition
  • An annual whole school “Race for Life” fun run to support Cancer Research

Our upcoming projects are to raise awareness of being safe on the internet and an anti-bullying campaign.

On Tuesday 2nd May, School Council are going to Runnymede Borough Council Chambers in Addlestone to attend Pupil Parliament. We will be giving a presentation about our school values and competing against other local schools for the chance to win the trophy.

As well as this, we will also be debating British Values within our community and taking part in a ballot.

We are all very excited about this as it is our first public debate on behalf of Sayes Court School.
