At Dilkes Academy we have 20 School Council representatives, who were elected by their class peers at the beginning of the school year. In addition to this we have a chair and vice chair person, who were voted into the role following passionate speeches about why they would be suited to the role!
The School Councillors have a key role in helping to make our school a happy and safe place for all pupils. They provide key links between their class and other groups/committees in addition to ensuring that all pupils are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. The School Councillors know that pupil voice is important and always listen to their peer’s suggestions, make notes and discuss these during weekly School Council meetings. To begin the school year, school council representatives are collecting views on how to improve the playground experience at both break and lunch times. Please speak to a member of the school council with your suggestions.
