School Council

Our school council is made up of 2 students from every class. Each councillor has been proposed and elected by their peers in a democratic way to represent their views and raise issues with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors of the school.

The school council  at CCJ can propose and take forward initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers, and be involved in strategic planning  and processes. Our school council have the opportunity to work with the governing body, to choose some fundraising projects and be a part of staff appointments.

The purpose of an effective school council is to help children and young people to:

  • Enjoy and feel empowered by their education
  • Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them
  • Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place
  • Develop life skills through participation
