Our School Council

At Alpha Preparatory School we value the benefits of operating a school council.
The School Council represents the whole school. Through our school council and class council work it is hoped that we can develop a balance and wholeness, helping to make our community more harmonious and good to live in. Our school council work enables pupils to exert a positive influence. Everyone benefits from the work of the School Council.

Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:

  • A safe, happy but fair learning environment.
  • A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them.
  • A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills.
  • An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school.
  • To experience a democratic process.

Our School Council gives pupils experience of:

  • Planning, organising and monitoring small projects.
  • Speaking and listening skills.
  • Debating skills.
  • Mediation and negotiating skills.
  • Basic budgeting and managing money.

Our school council aims to prepare our pupils for citizenship by teaching them about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school system.
