Life Idea #46 - School Council suggestions

Ensuring School Councils and similar bodies are truly representative of the student voice within a school can be a difficult job. Just as in the classroom, it is often the more confident voices who are heard. And what happens when a student has a great idea just after a meeting has taken place and then forgets it by the time the chance to share has come round again?

At Meon Junior School in Portsmouth they have set up a posties resource where students can add virtual sticky notes whenever they have a suggestion for the School Council.

Not only does this mean that idea can be shared at any time, it also allows students to see each other's suggestions and comment on them where appropriate which enables members of the School Council to see how much support an idea has within the student body.
