The School Council is a group of students elected by their peers to represent the student body and give a voice to their opinions and ideas.
The School Council plays an essential role in decision-making and policy formation at Thrybergh Academy. They meet regularly with senior staff to discuss issues and concerns affecting the student body and to propose solutions to these issues.
The School Council also helps to organize various events and activities throughout the school year, such as charity fundraising events, social events, and extracurricular activities. They are responsible for communicating information about these events to their peers, encouraging participation and involvement.
The School Council provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. By working together to achieve common goals, the School Council members learn to cooperate effectively and to express their ideas clearly and persuasively.
Wickersley Partnership Trust Student Council
Wickersley Partnership Trust recognises the importance of listening and responding to ‘student voice’ to help shape improvements to the school.
Each Trust school has a representative group of students (School Councillors), elected by their peers, who form the ‘School Council’. They play an active role in school – organising events, raising issues and representing the views of their peers with Senior Leaders in the school.
Each School Councillor runs an ‘election campaign’ annually and their classmates vote for their new class representatives – this is democracy in action!
Wickersley Partnership Trust believes School Councils develop its core values including cooperation, mutual respect and a commitment to diversity and equality.
Wickersley Partnership Trust has a ‘Trust Council’ which has elected representatives from each of the school-based Councils, likewise, they help shape improvements to the Trust.
The Trust Council meets once every half term at rotating venues across the Trust. During these meetings, the students discuss Trust priorities – what’s going well already, and what we could do better in our schools and School Councils.
Charity fundraising is a key aspect of the Trust Council too – the Representatives come up with joint ideas on how we – as a Trust – can ramp up our charitable efforts.
At the end of each meeting, the Trust Council sets an agenda for the School Councils and how they’re going to move forward with their fantastic new ideas.
All minutes from the meetings will be shared with the Student Body by Trust Council Representatives and on Wickersley Partnership Trust’s website.
The Junior and Senior Trust Councils will also meet once a year at a leadership summit.
