Our School Well-Being Council is an integral part of Hunslet Moor; many important discussions take place at regular meetings and key decisions that affect our school are made through contributions from our pupil representatives on the council. We recognise the importance of ensuring children have a voice and that their ideas and opinions are valued. Each class elect a representative democratically, who will regularly share outcomes from discussions and listen to opinions of classmates; bringing these to council meetings.
Our Healthy Schools validation visit acknowledged that;
The School Council is a key stakeholder in this school and supports the vision of the school. The children have various roles of responsibility and are confident within them. Pupils feel valued and are provided with opportunities to express their views on how to improve things at their school.
