We are pleased that the Teaching Citizenship magazine has reviewed our new School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils. 

However, we would like to clarify a few points!

This fantastic new handbook is a re-write and re-design of the old School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils.  It has been brought up to date with current ideas and refreshed with new sections, illustrations and helpful Morphs! 

IT DOES NOT REPLACE THE KS1 AND PRIMARY SCHOOL COUNCIL TOOLKITS. 

Our Toolkits are designed for use by Teachers who are setting up and supporting School Councils within their school.  These comprehensive books give advice and guidance for both Teacher and Pupil sessions covering ideas such as Circle Time, Charters of Behaviour, Peer Mediation, Writing an Agenda and even music for School Council songs.

The School Council Handbook for Primary Pupils has been designed to be given to each member of the School Council to help them understand and fulfil the important role they have been elected to.  It gives advice on such areas as research, fundraising, issues and inclusion.  The Handbook is not intended for use as a teaching tool within a citizenship lesson.  It is a special Handbook aimed at helping each School Councillor work as part of a team to assist their School Council be the best channel possible for Pupil Voice within their school.

We have two Twitter accounts:

SchCouncilForum : For School Councillors, Link Teachers and other interested parties, to pool ideas, news and chat.

SchoolCouncils : School councils turn pupil voice into action and schools into communities. We support pupils, staff and others to create effective, whole school, participation
