What is the the school council?
Every two years the children in Years 2 to 6 vote to choose a school councillor for their class. It is a completely democratic process.
The School Council is the ‘voice’ for all the children at Grove and there are regularly meetings where all manner of things are discussed.
The School Council play a very important role at school and its members really enjoy being a part of it. You can easily spot a School Councillor as they wear red jumpers!
