School Council

As part of our work during ‘Parliament Week’, we elect our School Council democratically through voting for people to represent our views as a class. Those who choose to stand for School Council prepare a speech, we hold hustings and hold official voting at our ‘Burbage Primary School Polling Station’.

The School Council are involved in decision-making in school, they seek the views of their classes and feedback on meetings held by Miss Arkle who leads the School Council.
