School Council

My name is Mr. Flatley and I am responsible for overseeing the Garfield School Council.

It is a very important body in the life of the school and meets every half term to discuss issues that arise throughout the academic year.

It is important that the School Council reflects the views of all pupils and therefore each class, from years 1 to 6, is represented by a Council member. It is their job to feed back any ideas, interests or concerns to the meetings that are held. These items are then discussed and, where appropriate, issues are communicated to members of the school’s Senior Leadership Team.

The Council has made many valuable contributions to improving the life of the school, including overseeing a consultation process that led to the installation of a climbing frame and interactive games in the KS2 playground. Councillors have also been responsible for organising and judging the amazing acts on show at our Garfield’s Got Talent event.

Last academic year (2019-20), we hosted a Q&A with our local MP, Bambos Charalambous, where the Councillors had the chance to find out more about local and national democracy.

Our School Council representatives at Garfield are determined and enthusiastic about being members and understand the importance of being elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.
