Have Your Say

At Barr Beacon, we have been working hard to make sure the pupils’ voice gets heard. To this end, our School Council have been tasked with finding out what the school wanted.

School Council acts as an in-between for students to address concerns to a member of the teaching staff. These are the very conscious students who are aware of issues and want to push to make the school a better place.

The School Council meets monthly with Mr Foster to discuss all manner of whole school issues. They are consulted about key policies and contribute to the delivery and planning of tutor time activities and whole school assemblies that support our Beacon Values.
