Our school council is an elected group of children who represent their class at regular meetings discussing a wide range of school issues. It gives our children the opportunity to be involved in decisions bout the school, allows them to make suggestions and voice opinions about issues that concern them. School council have the chance to develop areas of school priority or importance.
We strive to craft confident and articulate leaders who can share their views to any audience and apply their leadership skills to real life situations. At Styal, each year, two School Council members share the impact of their work with school governors at a Full Governing Board meeting.

Other visitors talked to us about how local councils help to keep roads safe with signs, road gritting and road safety talks.
