Student Council Mission Statement

Our missions statement:

“Stanwell Student Council will give pupils the opportunity to voice their opinion on, participate in, and improve the running of the school. All pupils will be listened to, all ideas and suggestions will be considered and feedback will be given. The Council will work with all staff and pupils to help make Stanwell a friendly, positive, and supportive learning environment.”

The Student Council consists of two elected pupils from each year council – one boy and one girl. Each year council consists of twenty pupils – two elected from each form group. Year councils meet several times each half term and the Student Council meets at least once each half term.

Mr Watkins is the school council link teacher and at least one member of the Senior Leadership Team attends every meeting.

The Student Council links all the other Learner Voice Groups together and provides a forum for each group to update pupils on recent and planned events. Each Year Council has two Y13 Prefects attached to it to help plan and run meetings.

Get Involved

You don’t have to be a member of the council to join in. Either speak to your year councillor, year tutor or contact your Student Council with suggestions for improving any aspect of school life by e-mailing: schoolcouncil@stanwell.org.
