At Scissett we have a school council in order for pupils across all year groups and classes to share their views.
At the beginning of the school year children are informed how to join the school council and classes hold elections. Each class elects one representative, making a school council of 21 pupils. When the council meets they then elect a chair, a vice-chair and a minute taker. Four pupils from across the year group were also elected to join the Joint School Council to meet with councillors from Shelley College and Kirkburton Middle.
Council meetings are held every Monday lunchtime. Each class has a book where they record any ideas and issues they would like their Council representative to discuss with other members.
