The aim of Islwyn School Council Executive committee is to give pupils the opportunity to express their views about school life in a forum where they will be listened to and action taken when appropriate. It also enables them to actively participate in improving the school community.

Pupils who participate in decision-making enjoy enhanced self-esteem and motivation, gain important personal, social and organisational skills, and become familiar with group and democratic processes.

At the organisational level, pupil involvement in decision making leads to better relationships, more relevant and effective policies, and better learning. In the best scenarios, pupils and adults work together as partners to ensure that their school provides the best possible learning environment for all. Ultimately, we believe pupils have an important part to play in helping our school to improve in all aspects of school life.
