Speak Out

Primary school pupils explain their council and setting it up West Bridgford Primary School has an active school council, with wide ranging roles and responsibilities. There are established protocols, decided by a committee, which also maintains minutes and files. Each week council members visit each class and create an agenda based on issues raised by individual pupils across the school. These issues are then opened for discussion to the school during council. Any points raised are noted in minutes and if further action is required this is discussed by the committee and the headteacher before being taken further. The current committee was interviewed and selected by the out-going committee in the summer term 2005. Each class also has its own class council, which also follows established protocols (adapted to suit each class).

In this programme, the pupils at the school address pupil viewers, explaining their school council and giving advice to viewers on how to set up their own school council.
