At Clapham Primary we believe that students have a voice and are able to make a valuable contribution to our school. It is important that students be given the opportunity to express their views on issues of concern to them in the school. It is equally important that they are listened to and encouraged to take an active part in promoting the aims and objectives of the school.
Student voice plays an important part in the day to day proceedings of Clapham Primary. The Student Representative Council aims to increase student involvement and participation and support students working through democratic processes to bring about change and deal with issues which they deem as important for their school and wider community.
All SRC class representatives are supported and encouraged by their classroom teachers to run regular class meetings where the sharing of ideas and information occurs. These meetings are opportunities for students to discuss issues or ideas in reference to their community, school or class.
SRC meets fortnightly, these are formal meetings where; the agenda is set, meeting chaired and minutes taken by student leaders with support from a teacher facilitator.
