Article 12 Ambassadors (School Council)

"Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously."

Article 12 - United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

Snaresbrook Primary School has a School Council made up of pupils (Article 12 Ambassadors) from Years 3 to 6. Two representatives from each class are elected by their peers. Before the elections, children are asked to present to their class why they would make a good school council representative and an official secret ballot takes place. The School Council is an important part of the school as it gives the children a voice in matters affecting them and is part of our work towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. It teaches children about democracy, active citizenship and their right to express their opinions. 

An Article 12 Ambassador will also be appointed to every EYFS and KS1 class so that the younger children are represented in decision making.  

The School Council meets every fortnight to discuss their views on school improvement issues. The Article 12 Ambassadors are responsible for seeking the views of their peers and ensuring these views are shared at meetings. 

Our current Article 12 Ambassadors are;

The school council led a fair trade café which looked amazing. The children did really well and raised £165! Well done.
