Welcome to Owler Brook School Council
What is a school council?
Welcome to school council, a children's council and the voice of the children. We are there to help make the school better and help the school to grow. We ask people if they are ok and if they need any help.
We have discussed topics such as anti-bullying week, funding, summer fayre and much more.
The best thing I like is being the 'Leader'. It has helped me lead and be a team worker.

A School Council is an ideal opportunity for children to get more involved in the way a school is run.
A School Council gives pupils the opportunity to develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation
