Proud to be part of

Community Council

Being a representative on the Community Council is a very responsible position. Your role is to ensure all voices are heard. You have to listen to your friends, record your class ideas as a representative and sometimes have to give up your lunch times to action these suggestions. However, it is also a chance to play an important part in our Benjamin Adlard community.

Children can feel a little nervous about putting themselves up for the position, but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas so be brave!

What does the Community Council do?

The CommunityCouncil takes part in activities including:

  • Listening to the views and concerns of other pupils
  • Representing these concerns to other adults
  • Discussing what the next area of interest is going to be and helping Mrs Wilson to action these to improve the school.
  • Thinking of ways to contribute to our school and Gainsborough.
  • Having the responsibility for a budget
  • Representing Benjamin Adlard School as a role model
Community Council Vision

Our Community Council will work together as a team to ensure we can be the best school by discussing and making decisions. We aim to make pupils feel comfortable, happy and safe at school. We also want all the children in school to have a voice, that is why the meetings are held in the classroom so all can voice their ideas.
