At Widney we have a good understanding of the way a democratic council works. Every school year, children from each class prepare a speech to win votes from their class in order to be voted in a school council representative. Each class has a boy and a girl representative. Classes discuss issues every fortnight and these are taken forward to School Council meetings. The link teacher is Miss Fletcher, who represents to teachers. Other adults are sometimes invited to meetings so that the council can make informed choices and decisions.
