School Council Structure

At Unsworth Academy we belive all members of our community should have a voice especially our learners. Our School Council structure allows learners to have a real say in issues that effect them and enables them to improve our school. During the election process learners develop their understading of democracy, a key British value, seeing it action and taking part.
To enable a clear flow of information we have established several key layers in our School council structure:

Form Leaders

Each form group has two form leaders who represent their form. Learners put forward their manifesto and were democratically elected to represent their form group at year council meetings.

Year Councils

Each year group has it’s own council to look at issues both specific to their year group or regarding the whole school. Each Year council have democratically elected 2 learners to represent their year group at school council meetings.

School Council

The Unsworth Academy School Council is made up of learners from all year groups who have been democratically elected to sit on the school council alongside our Senior Student Leaders. All learners bring issues and ideas from their year group meetings for discussion deciding on suitable solutions.
