School Council


Priestley Smith School has a very effective and dynamic School Council which meets regularly to discuss issues relating to the whole school.

The council is chaired by students, minutes of meetings are recorded by students and the agenda is set by students. Senior school staff attend and contribute to the meetings.

 School Council members are involved in school improvement planning, meet agencies which work with the school such as Citiserve meal contractors and meet with OFSTED. They manage a school council improvement budget. As evidenced by OFSTED, students on the school council take their responsibilities very seriously and ensure that they represent the views of their peers

School council representatives are elected by the different year groups. Children from all sections of the school, both Primary and Secondary, take part.
