We are preparing children at Queen’s Manor to become leaders of the future. We view our pupils as stakeholders in their own education, and value their ideas and input to enhancing school life.
Alongside our Head Boy and Head Girl, Year 6 Prefects, Digital Leaders, Sports Captains and Vice-Captains, Eco Leaders, Library Monitors and Animal Welfare Leaders, we also have an active student council, with 2 elected members from each class.
They are elected at the beginning of the new school year and meet regularly to discuss a wide range of matters raised at individual class councils.
School Council is involved in fundraising events and has a pivotal role in recruitment of staff. They are also involved in leading whole school assemblies on a range of themes including anti-bullying, harvest, friendship and values.
“School Council represents children across the school, collecting ideas for how the school could be better. They listen to everyone’s ideas and make decisions about changes that can be made. School Council is the voice of Queen’s Manor.”
Nicole Coombs, Year 6.
Charlotte, our Head Girl, and William, our Head Boy, lead the school council meetings. They feed back decisions made and issues raised by the school council to the Headteacher and senior leadership team. They have also been invited to attend governing body meetings.
This Year Charlotte and William wrote a letter to the Queen on behalf of the whole school, to congratulate her on becoming the longest reigning British monarch in history. They enjoyed reading the Queen’s reply to all the children.
