The Academy Council are democratically elected by their class members. Each child who would like to be a member of the council presents a manifesto that tells the class why they would like to be an Academy Councillor and the rest of the class then vote for the children that they would like to represent them on the council.
The children who are selected to be on the Academy Council attend an interview with the Head of Academy and the Academy Council Lead Teachers. One child is then selected from each class to be the Academy Councillor and the others are selcted to be Class Buddies, who support the school rules and wellbeing of children in the academy.
There is a Head Girl and a Head Boy selected from the nominations in the Year 6 classes. The Head Girl and Head Boy represent the academy to the local and wider community.
The Academy Council meet fortnightly to discuss current objectives and plan new ventures. The also meet with members of the community, including local PCSO’s and Neighbourhood Wardens. After the meetings the Academy Council feedback to their peers in class to inform them of their objectives for the next few weeks.
