    The School Council

    As a Rights Respecting School, Emmer Green has a very active School Council.
    It allows our pupils the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them,
    and to have their views taken seriously, under Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
    It is important that the pupils in our school have a voice.

    Elections
    Every October, we elect a new council. Every child in school is given a chance to write
    a manifesto, stating why they would like to be a member of the school council.
    These are then displayed around the classrooms, so that everyone gets a chance to read them. On the day of elections, the school hall is transformed in to a polling station, with booths for the children to vote for their chosen candidate. Each child is allowed to vote for one boy and one girl in their year group. These votes are then placed in boxes and counted by the current school council members.

    Results
    After the results have been counted, an assembly is held in which the current school council members announce the new school council and give them their badges.
    We have 16 council members in total, representing the 16 classes in our school; from Foundation up to Year 6.

    Meetings
    The 16 members of the council meet every week to discuss any issues that their peers want to discuss, or to plan their next fundraiser.

    The Council are big supporters of:
