How to run a class council meeting

School council met today and agreed on how to run class council meetings.

  1. Allow half an hour
  2. Have them weekly, on a Tuesday
  3. One councillor acts as chair and the other acts as secretary
  4. Use the agenda post, on Student Voice, to guide the class discussion
  5. One person speaks at a time
  6. Use questions to clarify what it is a class member means

Councillors will share all thoughts and ideas at Thursday’s school council meeting.

After lots of discussion the council decided that these would be the council’s 5 aims.

  2. To make everyone feel welcome, especially new children.
  3. To make sure everyone feels safe.
