The Pupil Council structure in Grangemouth High School has changed following consultation with last year's School Council. Pupils from the School Council visited three other schools to find out about their Pupil Councils. From these visits a number of changes were suggested by the School Council. These were shared with pupils and teachers and approved to come into practice from August 2016.
House Councils remain in place but with additional responsibilities for Form Leaders (previously known as Form Reps). The number of House Council meetings has increased from 5 to 7 meetings per school session, in response to a request from last year's School Council. Each House Council is supported by a Principal Teacher and is made up of:
- 1 Form Leader for each form class from S1 to S6
- House Captains
- Vice House Captains
House and Vice House Captains chair House Council meetings and ensure minutes are shared so that all pupils and teachers are aware. In addition to bringing issues raised by pupils in their form classes to Council meetings, Form Leaders also play a lead role in organising fund raising activities for our chosen School Charity. House Councils propose charities to be considered for support.
The School Council has been replaced in our new system by the Pupil Senior Leadership Team. This consists of:
- School Captains
- House Captains
- Vice-House Captains
It meets fortnightly and reviews the issues discussed at House Councils. The Pupil SLT decides which issues require further action and shares these with the School Senior Leadership Team (Mr Dunn and Deputes). The Pupil SLT has the final say on which charity the school will support based on the recommendations from House Council.
