Crowan Primary has its own School Council made up from elected representatives from Year 2 to Year 6. Meetings are called by the children and minutes recorded. Each member is entrusted to communicate the views of other children to the meetings as well as their own, and to share the outcomes with the remainder of children within their classes.
The School Council helps to interview applicants for jobs at the school, organises social events, and debates the events and decisions affecting all aspects of the school’s provision.
Crowan Primary also has its own ‘Playground Leaders’ – children trained to lead sporting activities for other children in the school and offer practical help to their peers to help resolve disputes and upsets.
