At Mudeford Junior School, we have a strong pupil voice which is represented by our elected school councillors.
Mudeford Junior School Council was first set up in October 2004 and since that date our children have worked hard to maintain a very effective council where all children in school have a chance to be heard through the class councils.
Every year two councillors are elected by their peers to represent their class. They wear their badges with pride and stand out as role models in the school. Councillors can be identified by their photos on the notice board in the school hall. You can also find the minutes of the latest minute and any projects we are currently working on.
Mudeford Junior School is a Level 2 Rights Respecting School which promotes the Rights of the Child. The School Council gives all the children at Mudeford Junior School a voice.

In 4 years as a school council member, I have partnered different people who all bring something different to the table. The best bit is seeing us all work in harmony. Anyone can stand as a class representative
