The Oaky Voice through Meetings and monitoring

By having an Oaky School Council, children:

  • Enjoy and feel empowered by their education;
  • Feel that school responds to their needs and views;
  • Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them;
  • Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place;
  • Develop active life skills through participation and leadership;
  • Actively participate in the British value of democracy.


The Junior Leadership team meet once every half term after school with a senior leader to work together on leadership and strategic development. 

School Council - which includes the Junior Leadership team as well as class council members - meet twice a half term in school time to discuss the outcomes of the class council meetings and vote on an action/s to put in place. 

Class Council meetings take place twice a half term and involve the class council rep posing a question to the class which is linked to the School Development plan. 

Outcomes and actions of meetings 2023 and 24

These will be uploaded after each School Council meeting.

Most recent pupil questionnaire

Our KS2 children were all given a pupil questionniare, which consisted of 20 questions to capture how children feels towards school. School council then met and decided on which of the 20 questions to report on. They have decided to report on 8 of those questions. The results of the questionnaire will be uploaded very soon, as soon as school council have compiled the results.
