The School Council was set up in September 2003, and since then it has been an integral part of the school community. Although it is overseen by members of staff, it is primarily run by children from all year groups and consists of a Chairperson as well as one elected representative from each class and two from each Year 6 class. Through a democratic vote, a new School Council is formed during the Autumn term every year, allowing new members to offer fresh ideas.
Pupil voice in the Early Years and Primary phase at Harleston Sancroft Academy is an essential component of how we do things. All children should feel like they have a part to play in the development of the school and the School Council is a key way that they can contribute to the life of the school, as well as giving something back to the community that they belong to.
