School Council

 

Each class elects two representatives to serve as school councillors for the year. Elections for 2020-21 were recently held. These representatives meet regularly and act as link between the class and the school's Senior Leadership Team.

 

School Council elections are an example of the British Value of Democracy and of Godwin's commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 12 of which states: Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.

 

Children can choose to stand for election and prepare a short speech to outline to their peers the relevant skills that they possess and explain why they are the best candidate for the role. Each child in the class has an equal vote and the boy and girl with the highest number of votes are elected to represent their class for the year.

The 32 representatives’ main role is to:

  • Collect the views of their classmates and pass them on at the school council meeting

  • Take an active role in school council meetings

  • Let their classmates know what is discussed at school council meetings

In 2020-21 the 32 School Councillors are:
