Children's Voice - Student Council

Being a member of the School Council is extremely prestigious and popular at Moor Nook Community School. The pupils take the role very seriously and many year groups ask pupils to make a speech to demonstrate their worthiness for this role. Each class then votes for two representatives to be on the school council.

The School Council meets half termly and there is an agenda and minutes are taken. The notice board at the bottom of the stairs opposite the library shows these. We greatly value all their views. Recently they wanted bike racks and an awning. Both these requests were accepted and have proved to been very successful. The School Council are also part of the Children's Parliament for Lancashire and Preston’s School Council.


The School Governing Body meets once a term and consists of various members including teacher and parent representatives.

Within the Governing body there are Finance, Staffing, Curriculum and Building Committees, which also meet at least once a term.

The Head Teacher is also a member of the Governing Body.
