At Lyndhurst Community Primary School we believe that every child should have a voice, so we established our School Council to give the children the space to make sure that their voices were heard. Every child in every year group (Year 1 - Year 6) has the opportunity to run as a School Council member for their class. We discuss the British Value of a democracy and how everyone has a vote and that their vote is kept secret and no one has the right to ask who or what they voted for. Each year group is represented by 2 people, with Year 6 children having roles that carry more responsibility.
We believe that listening to the children is the best way to understand the ethos and feel of our school and they will guide us in our mission to ensure that every child has their best experience in our school. Our School Council aims to meet at least once every half term.
