The school council is made up of representatives from each class group and is supported Mrs Foster and Mrs Ash.
Each member is elected by his peers and serves on the council for the academic year. Meetings are called at regular intervals and the class representative reports back to the class any points of concern or general interest.
The council has certain responsibilities within the school, one of which is taking part in the appointment of new staff. Their input in the process is important in the decision making process.
The school council also organise events in school and were very proud of their ‘Polygon Pride’ non-school uniform day. They are also responsible for the introduction of a school uniform, and are currently working on a possible change of colour and design. There is a set amount of money available for the school council to spend each year on projects suggested by the pupils. Previous funds have been spent on new seating areas in the playground, upgrading sports equipment for break time.
The role of school council member is an important one within the school. The Council meets every half term, class council meetings are held before each meeting to ensure every child has the opportunity to have their say.
