The children at Albemarle have a high level of impact and influence on the atmosphere of the school and are involved in the decision making. Across the school year, children meet regularly with the Headteacher to discuss their learning and opportunities to improve school life.
Each year, two children, one boy and one girl, from Years 1 to 5 are elected by their peers to represent their class.
In Year 6, two boys and two girls are elected by their peers to represent their class on the School Council. These young adults are called ‘Heads of School’.
The ‘Heads of School’ role is very similar to that of the School Council, however they are often called upon to take part in school tours with the Headteacher, show visitors around the school and form part of interview panels.
Throughout the school year, the School Council meet regularly with the Headteacher to talk about the curriculum, discuss opportunities to improve their learning and share ideas on ways they can make a difference to society.
This year, the School Council have chosen to support a number of Charities, through fund raising events such as Wear it Pink, Genes for Jeans, Children In Need and Red Nose Day.
