School Council

School Council Ethos

Student democracy plays a very important part in the day-to-day life at St John Fisher. The Student Council works to enhance the environment at school and is our recognised, democratic structure.

The School Council offers students an opportunity to have their say about a wide range of issues in school. Students have been involved in lots of activities ranging from staff interviews, meetings with the Senior Leadership Group (SLG), fundraising, presenting assemblies and improving the school grounds

How the School Council Works

The school council is made up of two students from each form who are then responsible for holding meetings in their forms and feeding back to the year council. Two students from each year group are elected to attend the whole school council meetings. . It is through this system that every student has a voice and every idea is noted.

Meetings are held half-termly and are often attended by the SLG or other appropriate members of staff who are relevant to the issues raised at the meetings.

The School Council is more than just a venue for complaints; it provides an opportunity to build inter-year relations, deals with issues that affect students across the school which can vary from students’ own experiences through to academia and social events.
