At St James’ CE Primary, our Church Council is a much-valued part of our school. It consists of two representatives from each class, from Year 1 to Year 6. The Church Council meets frequently to express views and make decisions on the church aspects of our school.
Each year, a new Church Council is elected by staff and students. This half term, our Church Council is being elected. Does your child have an interest in being part of this group?
The role of Church Councillor includes attending meetings with visitors, listening to people’s suggestions and representing the Christian distinctiveness in our school.
Current Church Councillors say you must:
- Be ready and wise to make decisions – sometimes not the decision we want to make but it is a fair decision
- Have skills to look after the church side of our school
- Have good listening skills
- Be confident enough to sometimes lead collective worship and to talk to visitors
Does your child want to be part of the Church Council? Tell them to speak to Mrs Rowley or their class teacher to put themselves forward for the role!
