Our Aims & Purposes
The School Council exists to represent the voice of the students, promote their ideas and encourage their views and interests.
All students are given equal opportunity to participate.
The School Council at Philip Southcote School aims to serve its students as effectively as possible and make students aware of wider issues, in addition to playing an important role in establishing links with the community.
Role of the School Council within the School Community
Often when teaching positions within the school become vacant, the School Council will be asked to establish an interview panel to represent the students in the selection of a new teacher. Over the past few years, Student Council have been involved in the appointment of many new staff members including the Senior Leadership Team !
The School Council meet once a fortnight. During the meeting the students discuss ideas relevant to their area of focus.
School Council Plan 2017-2018
On Tuesday 17th October 2017, Phillip Southcote held an election to elect our new School Councillors. The classes were called into the hall where they were given polling cards. Special booths were made for the children to cast their vote in private. The children chose their candidate, by putting an X beside their name. They placed their polling card into the ballot box. Once everyone had voted, the votes were counted and the results were revealed.
