School Council (previously known as Young Governors)
At Haselworth Primary School, we aim to involve pupils as much as possible in the decision making process. This can be through class discussions, surveys, assemblies and informal discussions. We sometimes also have competitions and consultations about changes at the school.
The School Council will meet with Mrs Jones to discuss how to continue to improve our school.
