The purpose of our School Councilis to encourage pupils to get involved in the issues which concern them and give pupils a greater voice in what happens in and around the academy.
Everyone’s opinions and views matter at Ark Castledown Academy. Therefore, we have two members of the council from each class and children are encouraged to participate in the group to cover issues that concern the different age groups.
At the Council meetings representatives have the opportunity to raise issues that are important to their class and help make positive changes within our school community.
School Council Representatives aim to make Ark Castledown Primary Academy the best school it can be. Being a School Council Representative is a very important job. Representatives are the voice for their friends.
Our Principal Mr Rankin sets the School Council missions such as "what can we do to make reading at home easier and more enjoyable?", to find out what charities their classmates would like to support, and how bullying and rubbish waste can be reduced.
