Welcome to our School Council page!
Our Curriculum Intent
At St Edward’s, we believe that pupils should inspire one another; striving to improve their school and wider community, implementing positive changes. We value the voice of the pupils and work with them to ensure that our community is the best it can be. We work together to achieve our goals, learning and growing as one. Our School Councillors work as a team, representing their own views and the views of the children in their classes and actively engaging in regular meetings to discuss these. Furthermore, we develop our councillors to be leaders within our school and to understand the responsibility that this brings with it.
Well done to everybody that ran within the school council elections. You all provided us with some superb speeches, fantastic posters and enthusiastic campaigning.

Some of our wonderful School Councillors are ready and waiting for customers! Raffle tickets for these fantastic hampers will help to raise money for our Lenten charities.
Our School Council organised a Pyjama Day to mark the start of Mental Health Week. We raised funds for Forward Thinking Birmingham.
To raise the profile of our wonderful School Council, we are requesting sponsorship for some high-vis jackets. These will be worn by school council members during break and lunchtimes to make them more visible to their peers, allowing for more opportunities to share ideas and suggestions for improving the school environment and fundraising. Our School Councillors have written some fantastic letters requesting sponsorship, so watch this space...

During our first school council meeting, we discussed our objectives and the importance of being a voice for all pupils. We also received our badges which we are very proud of.
During this special time of November, we felt that it was important to not only think about the voices of our friends but also of those people who had fought and died for our country.
Meeting with Mrs Kennett and Mrs Carry
