At Langstone Junior Academy, we believe that our School Council is an important and useful way for us to provide leadership and development opportunities for our pupils. As a member, you have the voice to propose and take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of your peers, and be involved in strategic planning and processes such as the School Development Plan, governing body meetings and staff appointments.
We believe our School Council encapsulates the fundamentals of British Values. Using a democratic system, our members begin as one of many candidates nominated by their peers, followed by a week long election process where candidates can promote themselves using a range of strategies. In the end, we try to mimic our British system by holding a whole-school vote using polling stations.
Once elected, our meetings aim to develop and empower our members to be positive role models of mutual respect, rule of law and individual liberty by empowering them with a voice. With that voice, our members have the opportunity and responsibility to inspire our pupils to be good and valued citizens within school and the local community.
School Council meetings will be held every other Thursday in 4GC with Miss Chappell and Mrs Geall from 3.30pm – 4.15pm.
Our first meeting of the year will be on Thursday 26th September.
