School Council

At The County High School, Leftwich, we value the student voice and see it as an important means of communication between staff and students. We believe that valuing the student voice helps contribute towards Citizenship education, allowing students to become involved in school life and develop their awareness of how to make important decisions that will affect their community.

The School Council is made up of three members of each year group who meet on a half-termly basis. Discussions within meetings are primarily created from the suggestions that are posted in the School Council comment box by students and, where possible, the School Council will aim to act on issues relating to the school community and students' learning.

Last year, the School Council took part in some very important work, collaborating with members of the Senior Leadership team to give their input into the school policies that most affect their life in school. Additionally, the School Council took a leading role in the organisation and hosting of the whole-school EU Referendum vote. Students were in charge of raising awareness of the vote in fellow students, looking after the balloting process on the day, counting votes and feeding back on the results. Some excellent contributions to a busy year!
