The Peak Academy Pupil Council
At The Peak Academy we believe all our pupils have a voice that should be heard. We care about what our pupils think and take time to listen to them. It allows us to share our ideas, beliefs and values.
We believe in giving all our pupils the opportunity to become Leaders and role models for other pupils.
Our Pupil Council allows our pupils to have engagement with many aspects of school life ranging from: Safeguarding, Health and safety, Public Relations, Minute -Taking, Communications, fund-raising, Marketing and Advertising and raising standards in Teaching and Learning in the classroom.
Every Tutor Group has an elected Pupil Council Representative who shares the views of the Tutor Group at the Council meetings which take place termly. Both Key Stage 3 and 4 are represented.
There are Core Curriculum Representatives who keep us all informed about exciting Learning opportunities and developments taking place in the Core subjects.
Pupils take part in lesson Observations and provide feedback to Staff regarding the quality of Teaching and Learning.
Our elections are run without prejudice or discrimination as any pupil is entitled to stand as a Pupil Council Representative. There is also a clear pupil Council Constitution.
The Pupil Council have had a number of successes in the school ranging from advising on lunch menus working with Cater- Link, ensuring rewards are appropriate, refurbishment of rooms, meeting and greeting visitors, outdoor developments and fundraising and marketing for Charity Events.
