Elections

At St Margaret’s we take our pupils’ voice very seriously. As a result of this, we have three councils with pupil involvement:

  • Worship Council

  • Learning Council

  • School Council

  • Eco Council

 

Each of these councils are established early on in the autumn term with the members being democratically elected by their classmates. This provides the pupils with an insight into the democratic process in electing Governments and further develops our teaching around British Values.

Listed below are the results of the Council votes and the consequent elected members of each council for 2020/2021.

Pupils who nominated themselves for election were required to write a speech that was delivered to their classmates. Following this, each class had the opportunity to partake in a secret ballot to elect one member per council. We will hold a new election process to elect new members of each council in September of the 2020/2021 school year. The elected pupils will play a big part in how the school is run, including how we conduct worship, how to improve teaching and learning and ideas for ‘whole school projects’ and inspirational days/trips/workshops.
