Aims of the Learning Council

 Learning councils are a way of children and young people having a greater say over matters that affect their school and wider lives.

Our learning council gives students the chance to tell teachers and staff their ideas and represents each class in school. It allows pupils to be involved in decisions that affect them, keeping them informed about the life of the school and helps pupils to gain confidence to have their say. It can also help pupils to feel good about their place in the school community by giving them responsibilities and encourages active citizenship.

Our learning council meets every  month  to discuss ideas, decide on the most effective ways to change and improve the school and then talk to the people who can help to make it happen. Our learning council regularly shares news and information about new initiatives and the important things which we have achieved.

Together we can help Smithton to continue to grow and succeed.

Our aims are:


To make the school a better place by:

  • Helping around the school and keeping people safe.
  • Listening to the points of view of all the pupils.
  • Sharing our ideas with the rest of the school.
  • Working together with other people.
  • Raising money for ourselves and other good causes.
  • Helping people enjoy school more.
