School Council

What is a school council?

A school council is a formal group of pupils within a school who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views.


Why have a school council?

There are lots of reasons!


Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.  Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.


Our Gawber School Council help to improve many aspects of school life and help to maintain our strong links with the Gawber community  as well as helping to embed our school rules.

We are respectful, tolerant and kind. 


We are fair and polite to everyone.


We follow school rules to keep us safe, healthy and happy. 


We love and care for our planet




The Gawber School Council have been working closely with the Gawber History Group to find out all about the history of our community. Along with Councillor Trevor Cave (Cabinet Spokesperson  for Children's Services), Gawber School Council took part in a walk around our local area and visited key historical parts of our community.
