Holywell School Council
Our School Council helps all pupils at Holywell to become more involved in the life of the school. Representatives from each year group starting from Year 1 are democratically voted in by their classmates and each member serves a term on the Council (There are 2 representatives each term from classes in Years 1 and 2 in order to provide them with support). It is the responsibility of each member to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils that they represent. They are each issued with a badge and note-book in assembly. The School Council gives the pupils the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation.
