The Council meets once a month and discusses a wide range of issues which impact on students and the School. The Chair and Vice-Chair of SAFE meet with the School’s Leadership Team after every meeting and periodically with the full Governing Body.
SAFE is both the School Council and the voice of students. It is an engaging and vibrant group of students who talk confidently about issues, advise on curriculum and social time in school and raise considerable amounts for local, national and international charities they choose each year.
