Spotlight Debate

Spotlight on School Councils 2011

School Councils was the chosen topic for Powys Youth Forum’s Spotlight debate this year. Youth forum members researched the topic across secondary schools in Powys. Just fewer than 300 responses were received and initial findings were presented by the Youth Forum at the Spotlight on School Councils Conference in April.

The Youth Forum were joined by key note speakers Keith Towler, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Jane Harries, Pupil Participation Project Leader for DCELLS and Meredid Lewis from the National Participation Unit. Senior officers, county councillors, school staff and youth workers were amongst the 61 attendees.

The main conclusion from the day was that school councils should link with each other in order to share good practice; this could be in the style of a school council conference for school council reps and link teachers.

View below the report of the day, the presentations and a complete round up of the survey.
