School and Learning Council


Our Role


The Beech Hill School and Learning Council is an elected body of children who represent all pupils' views.


At Beech Hill everyone is important and we are always on the look out for new and exciting ideas, that can improve the running of our school. Our role is to bring about a positive change to everyone's lives and improve our facilities where we learn.


In School and Learning Council we gather everyone's ideas from each class in order to make changes.  We do this through Class Council meetings and suggestion boxes/folders within the classrooms and around school.


How do I become a School and Learning Council Representative?

To represent your class you need to present a speech or talk about why you would like to become a representative and explain about the skills you have to help you in this role. For example, you need to be a good listener and be able to communicate the ideas of others. When you have presented your speech the class votes and the people (one boy and one girl), with the highest number of votes, are elected. They are then the Class Council Representatives. All of the Class School Council Representatives meet regularly and these form the School and Learning Council.  Representatives are changed twice a year.


This year so far .....

  • We have been working with Food Counts Limited, our school's catering service, looking at menu options and how lunch times operate.
  • We have organised a very successful spots and stripes non-uniform day for visually impaired children.
  • We have organised staff to wear a festive jumper at Christmas to raise money as part of the Text Santa and Save a Child fundraising initiative.
  • We are arranging for another non-uniform day as part of our work for Sign2Sing as part of our annual support to raise funds for vulnerable deaf adults and children.
