Creative Writing Workshop

Student Council

The Barlow's Student Council gives our pupils the chance to voice their thoughts about school.

Student Councillors are nominated by their classmates and represent each Family Group across all the Years. Each half-term they meet to debate and discuss issues which are important to students, as determined by the Councillors. The Council makes recommendations to the the Headteacher about school issues such as teaching and learning, student behaviour, rewards, extra-curricular activities and school policies.

In early 2013, all members of the Student Council took part in a tasting session to help develop a new school menu. The Council also meet regularly to discuss the results of Pupil Voice surveys; where every pupil completes a questionnaire about their experiences in school. The Student Council discuss why they think pupils have certain views and suggest ways in which the school can continue to improve.
