At St James’ CE Primary, we value the views of our pupils. As such, our Church Council is a valued and essential part of our school. It consists of two representatives from each class, from Year 1 to Year 6. The Church Council meets frequently, at least once every half-term, to express views and make decisions on the church aspects of our school.
Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils. For example:
- which parts of collective worship do they enjoy?
- which parts of collective worship do they find most meaningful?
- do the children know the school’s Christian values?
The councillors have been involved in deciding which Christian values are important to them and our school. They also have a say in our collective worship and they help plan/lead a collective worship every term.
Recent decisions have included:
- Music for collective worship – music to enter and leave collective worship to
- Christian values – which Christian values we should have in our school and why (have a look at our Christian values page to see their reasons!)
