Benton Dene Schools

School Council 2020/2021

What is a school council?

A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

Each class has a pupil on the council or is represented by a pupil who will visit their class and collect their views and bring them back to the meetings. The school council is an exciting thing to be part of for pupils and staff as it's about the children be involved in contributing to and making decisions about things in the school and the school community that impact them. It is especially important for our pupils to have the chance to communicate their views and opinions and not be overlooked.


Please note;

Due to Covid-19 and the measures we have put in place we will be updating this page when pupils are allowed to move more freely around the building and meet their peers in different bubbles.

We all look forward to a time when we can facilitate this but our children are always encouraged to express their views/opinions and we promote speaking and listening throughout every zone in school.
