School Council

At Riverside we are committed to listening to the views of the children to ensure all pupils are happy, successful learners. 

Each class from year 2 up to year 6 elect two representatives – one boy and one girl to make up the School Council. 

In the summer term, children in year 1 also become more actively involved.  Up until this time, older members of the School Council run the class council meetings in the younger classes.

The aim of the school council is to:

  • Provide an opportunity for the pupils to understand and affect how the school is run
  • Give the pupils a voice where they can let staff know what they feel can be improved in the school
  • Identify solutions to any problems within the school

The School Council is run by the pupils and supported by Miss Davies and Mrs Kisby and they meet regularly.  If there is anything that you want to be discussed in the School Council meeting, tell your class representative or talk about it in your class council meeting.

Photographs of all of our School Council members are displayed on the board outside the hall.  Minutes from each of these meetings are also displayed there.
