At Northern House Academy we believe it is essential that pupils are given the opportunity to express their opinions about their school, to be heard, and to be taken seriously. We want pupils to be an integral part of the development of the school and subsequently involved in the vision of the school.
Northern House Academy School Council offers pupils the opportunity to meet on a termly basis in order to discuss ideas and opinions, create action plan, and the chance to implement their ideas.
Pupils from each year group are elected to be a member of the School Council and attend meetings once a term. It is the responsibility of the School Council member to speak to their year group and gather any suggestions or concerns and put them forward at these meetings.
Becoming a member of the Pupil Council is an aspiration for pupils at Northern House Academy, and is indicative of the sense of belonging that we hope each pupil shares with us. The positive contributions made by the pupils serving the School Council are recognised and celebrated, and are considered to be an extremely vibrant and successful aspect of our community.
