Cherry Oak School council is made up of pupils who have nominated themselves to be a member of the group to represent the student voice.
Children take part in elections where the whole school has an opportunity to vote for who they would like to represent them on the school council. The six children who have the most amounts of votes are elected on to the school council, and will serve their post for one academic school year.
The group meet fortnightly to discuss a variety of topics. It is an opportunity for them to discuss issues raised by classmates, events happening in school. School Council play an important part in contributing to the school improvement plan to ensure the pupil voice is heard.
School Council also assist with the interview process for teaching positions. They devise questions and are a part of the interview panel, giving feedback and opinions on candidates
