King Edward's School BATH

The school council

The School Council body at the Junior School is made up of two members from each form group (one boy and one girl). They are elected through a democratic voting system at the beginning of each academic year. They are then presented with their badges during an assembly and are welcomed into the Council.

The incoming council body helps to choose the Junior School charities for that year and to help support and promote these charities where possible by assisting with assemblies, making posters and displays etc. School Council members attend meetings on a regular basis each term and become involved in many aspects of school life. They help to make choices and suggestions about items such as the school playground, equipment, classroom wet break games and competitions. They provide feedback on what has been discussed at meetings to their forms during PSHEE lessons and bring new suggestions to subsequent meetings.

The School Council is also responsible for organising and co-ordinating fundraising events within their own form and for one off events, such as 'Ted’s Big Day Out' and 'Operation Christmas Child'. Being a school council member is a position of responsibility, and pupils are expected to uphold the Junior School values of charitable spirit and citizenship within the wider community and to wear their badge with pride.
