Student Council

About Kennet Valley’s School Council 

As a school, we listen to and respect the thoughts of our children. Our School Council provides an ideal opportunity for children to voice their opinions and views. 

A new school council is elected each year and is made up of one representative per year group. The representatives are voted for by their peers. Miss Hogan and Mrs Bushnell meet regularly with the group to consider and discuss suggestions from the whole school as well as plan and organise charity and school fundraising events. 


What we do 

Before a School Council meeting, children can discuss their ideas with the Council representatives. We also have a suggestion box on our Student Council display board where children can post their thoughts and ideas. We identify themes in our meetings and discuss them together.
