HPS School Council
What does school council look like at Harehills Primary School?
We elect our school councillors at the beginning of each academic year. The councillors chosen are given roles and responsibitlites that they focus on throughout the year. Our concillors speak to their classes every week about anything they would like to have discussed in our meetings. We have school council meeting each week.
Why do we have a school council?
Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. A school council is a way for our children to have their say on issues that they feel passionate about.
What is a cluster council?
Our cluster council is made up of four schools in the area, Hovingham, Bankside, Bracken Edge and Harehills Primary School. We meet at one of the schools termly where that school has the chance host and provide a focus. Cluster meetings are a great opportunity for our children to share what has been happening at school and in the wider community. Below is a picture of school councillors working hard during a cluster meeting.
