Our Student Council

Each year, Harry Watts Academy host a Student Council Election Week, where pupils will vote for who they want their school council members to be for the academic year.

For our Engage Pathway, our staff act as advocates for our pupils to help share their voice. 

Our Explore Pathway take part in a vote where pupils can choose their members using photographs and visuals on their ballot papers before posting them into their special boxes.

The Discover Pathway complete applications, take part in campaign speeches to share their ideas, and experience a mock polling station on election day.

Our Student Council will meet once a term to listen to pupils suggestions for school improvements and make action plans to implement their ideas. The Student Council will then feedback to their pathways.

Please see below our Student Council members.

Engage Pathway Student Council Advocate

Jess P

Jess P, Teacher

Hi, my name is Jess! I am the Engage Pathway advocate.

As a Teacher in the Engage Pathway, I have a strong understanding of the children within our pathway and recognise the importance of pupil voice. I wanted to give the children the opportunity to share their ideas and feelings in a fun and meaningful way which the children would understand. I believe it is important for all children to be heard and understood!
