GEMS SCHOOL COUNCIL
A whole-school commitment to pupil voice
Our school council is a body of students, elected by their peers, in a formal election setting. They represent the views of all the students at Gosforth East Middle school on decisions that impact them and consider ways to improve our school and implement change.
As a School Council, we see ourselves as the voice of all pupils in the school. We ensure that all views are taken into account in decisions about teaching, learning, fundraising and the success of our school. We aim to enhance citizenship to create a happy, healthy, safe and enriching learning environment and develop projects that involve everybody, build good relationships with our local community and improve the environment.
