School Council 2017-2018

A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all and who work hard to improve their school. At Oaks Primary Academy we have 2 representatives per class. Their role is to act as a link between the children in the class, the School Council, the Senior Leadership Team and the Governors of Oaks Primary Academy. Each member of the Council is elected through a democratic process, providing children with individual liberty to empower choices around their education.

On Thursday 19th October 2017 we are holding our School Council Elections. Each class has been finding out more about what a School Council is, how they work, what they do and what it means to be a School Councillor. Our Election Day is being supported by Maidstone Borough Council and Democratic Services. They are helping us to run the day, providing signage, ballot boxes and voting booths to make the experience as close to the real thing as possible. Councillor Butler is coming to our Assembly to announce the results.

Keep an eye on this page for photos of the day and more information once our School Council members have been voted in.
