Young Governors at Whiteley Primary School

September 2019

We now have our new group of Young Governors for this academic year. Well done to everyone who was selected.


About Young Governors

Any pupil from (Year 2 – Year 6) can put themselves forward to be their class representative. After preparing and presenting a speech the class then vote for who they would like to represent their class.

Pupils at Whiteley know that this is their school and their thoughts and ideas matter and so we have both a Class Council and the Young Governors.  These are in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.  Through Class Council all pupils can raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all their classmates in reaching a democratic solution.  Wider issues that arise during Class Council are discussed further at Young Governors this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard.


Please keep your eye on this page for updates on projects that we are involved in and decisions that we have made.
