Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

School Council

A school council is a representative group of pupils elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the senior managers and governors of their school. The school council can also 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.


School councils can help children to:

  • Enjoy and feel empowered by their education;
  • Feel that their school responds to their needs;
  • 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 active life skills through participating.

    schoolCouncil

At Easterside Academy the School Council is made up of two elected representatives from each year group, from Year 2 upwards. The Year 2 representatives also visit Reception and Year 1 classes to act as their voice.

We see our School Councillors as holding very responsible positions. A Councillor is someone who sits on the council.

It is their job to:

  • Attend meetings regularly.
  • Talk to people they represent and feedback their views to the council.
  • Make suggestions for change or improvement.
  • Have ideas to share with the council.
  • Take on a particular task and get things done.
  • Meet with the school Governors at least twice a year.
