Here at New Ford Academy, our Academy Council consists of a team of devoted, dedicated children who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views in and out of school.
The process of being voted into the Academy Council couldn’t be easier. Each year, children who wish to join this group either express their interest and are then voted in by their peers or they are nominated specifically by a class teacher who thinks that they would be an ideal candidate to represent their class across both the school and local community.
In this group, children take their roles very seriously. As a result of their hard work, the children in the Academy Council are able to orchestrate changes and take a pivotal role in representing New Ford both in the local and wider community. The Academy Council meet on a weekly basis to not only provide a voice for all pupils, but to assist and contribute ideas towards important decisions about the school and it’s environment, arranging charity events and much more.
Here are some of the things we have been involved with so far this year!
