St Joseph & St Teresa’s School Council is run by the children for the benefit of all children with Mrs Cullen as the link support.
Each class elects 2 representatives in the first half term of the new school year. One pupil from Y5 serves for 2 years as a peer mentor to new councillors.
Regular class council meetings take place and the ideas and suggestions are shared and discussed at the school council meetings. Minutes are recorded and shared with Pupils, Headteacher, Staff and Governors.

On Monday 16th November 2015 members of our School Council, who are also our Anti-bullying Ambassadors, presented an assembly that they had prepared on this year’s theme ‘Make some noise!’. The message this year is about making sure people don’t stand by and do nothing. In class the children have been looking at what is and what isn’t bullying, what as a school we do to tackle bullying and the consequences.

Well done to all past and present school councillors (Anti-Bullying Ambassadors) who contributed to achieving this award.
