The School Council is the students’ voice for change within Lampard Community School and gives students a say in some of the major decisions made at school. The School Council works across the Lower, Middle and Upper Phases in order to give a whole school representation. One school council member is chosen from every class elected by their fellow students. The School Council meet twice termly to discuss whole school initiatives linked to the School Development Plan. Members of the School Council then feedback any decisions made to the Senior Leadership Team and these decisions are incorporated into future plans.
Ways in which the School Council has recently helped to shape our School:
- The School Council have been involved in the recruitment process of new members of staff by taking part in the interview process.
- School Council members have audited our school dinners’ quality and made some changes.
- The School Council have reviewed the School PE Kit and stated their preference of colour.
- The students have contributed to plans for developing our playgrounds.
- They have also led in planning lunchtime clubs and activities based on the student’s interests.
We also have students who are part of ‘Champions For Change‘ who work with the Local Authority on developing the Devon Engagement Strategy.
