The Academy Council

Academy Information


An introduction

At the West Park Academy, our children have an important part to play in making decisions about the life and work of the school. One of the ways in which children can have their say and make sure that their views and ideas are listened to is through the Academy Council.

What is an Academy Council?
An academy council:

  • gives our children the chance to tell teachers, staff, parents and other children their ideas
    represents each class in the school
  • meets regularly to talk about important school issues and projects
  • puts forward the class views at council meetings
  • takes forward the views of the very young classes, who may find it difficult to put forward other’s opinions.
