School Council

School Council is an active part of the Birmingham Primary School community.

The parent and guardian members offer valuable perspectives based on their personal experiences, insights from their children, and the broader parent and guardian community. Meanwhile, teachers bring their extensive educational expertise to the council, benefiting the school community as a whole. What is a School Council?
