Our School Council

HCAT Councillors

Our HCAT councillors / SSG members play a critical role in representing our school at Trust events and meetings. They celebrate Westcott across the wider network of HCAT schools and work with other HCAT councillors to organise events.

They are also members of the SSG (previously known as the Local Governing Body), where they provide our governors with first-hand information about life as a child at Westcott. This, in turn, influences decision making about future priorities.

School councillors 2020/21

Our school council allows the children who attend our school to express their ideas about school life.

The council also provides a space where children can have the responsibility of representing the views and interests of others.

We meet on a regular basis and discuss any topics that have been raised.

We also talk through how we can raise money for new school resources.

Once a council meeting is over we will feed back to our fellow class children any information that they need to know.
