Pupil Leadership

School Council 

Our school council consists of a representative from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. Each member is elected by their peers in a democratic way through an election. We meet every half term to discuss a range of subjects to help improve our school and the local community. These meetings are recorded in our minutes and are shared by school council representatives with their class. 

Each member of our council, has an important role to play. The children take full responsibility for leading our meetings as well as feeding back to the rest of their class. We work closely with the senior leaders of Castlecombe and with the governors, to suggest improvements and share our good news with them. 

Please see our latest minutes at the bottom of the page.
