Our School Council is a body of students elected by their peers in a formal election setting. They represent the views of all the students at St Joseph's and they consider ways to improve the school. There are representatives from each class who discuss matters about their learning and school life and raise any concerns with the Senior Leadership Team.
At St Joseph’s we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.
Our vision is for all students at St Joseph’s Catholic Middle School to have their voices heard and make our school a caring, safe and healthy environment for all, by promoting our core values: kindness, resilience and respect.
Becoming part of our school council gives children the chance to develop some leadership skills. Each year we teach the children about democracy (one of the five British Values) and then complete class votes to choose our councillors. This is a fun process, which helps the children to understand the way that Britain is led and gives them an opportunity to write a letter of application or complete a verbal presentation to their peers explaining why they think they would be good at the job.
