School Council

At Burpham we greatly value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council acts as a vehicle for delivering pupil voice which is used to impact decisions made in the running of the school. At the end of every summer term, a whole school election takes place with ballot slips and a polling station to elect two school councillors from each class for the following academic year. School Council meetings are held regularly in the staff room with Mrs Marsden and there is a notice board opposite the hall door with pictures of all the school councillors and information about the projects they have been working on.
