Each September, pupils work together as a class to elect a member from each year group to sit on the School Council.
School councillors meet regularly with Mrs Lambert and bring any questions, ideas or concerns from their classes. They also work together on initiatives such as fundraising for charities or conducting pupil questionnaires. They are also involved in interviews for new members of teaching staff, bringing the pupil perspective to the panel, and meeting visitors to school such as the Mayor.
Pupils work in the Calder Valley Inter-School Council which meets at Calder High School. Previous projects have included a road safety campaign. They also meet Hebden Royd Town Councillors to learn about the council and to share their views and concerns and ensure these are actioned.
