Matthew Arnold School Council


What is the School Council?

The Student Council is an elected group of children who meet and work together to represent the pupils of Matthew Arnold. They are supported by Mrs Carter and Miss Bauress.


Who can be a member of the School Council?

At the start of each academic year (in September) each class will nominate two children – normally a boy and a girl – to become their class councillors. Every class from Year one up to Year Six votes for the children that they think will be able to represent their class best at School Council meetings.


How long can you be a School Councillor for?

School Councillors are elected to represent their classes for one year.


How many School Councillors are there?

Student Council has 12 members from years one to six.


What have the School Council been up to last year?

See below for just some of the things that the School Council were involved in over the last few years:

The School Council collect and discuss issues raised by each class and decide how they can help to improve the school community and environment. Last year this included ways at improving the playground, discussing school dinners and selecting activities for Golden Time. As a result children can enjoy their playtime doing things they enjoy such as, listening to and dancing to popular music, drawing and reading.
