Fazakerley School Council was formed in 2009 and is comprised of two representatives from each year group that are chosen annually using a paper ballot system. The council members are required to address and discuss issues that may have been raised by the pupils in their year groups and topics that are of current interest both within the school environment and globally.
The Councillors’ duties include attending term time meetings. The School Council Coordinator and Headteacher are present at all council meetings and often there are guest speakers who talk to the group about a particular topic. The Council will also represent the school on outings, such as to a Liverpool Schools’ Parliament gathering which are often held at Liverpool Town Hall. During these meetings the pupils have the opportunity to take part in relevant discussions and debates being held on the day and also work with other School Councils from across the city.

Liverpool City Councillor
Anthony Lavelle a past pupil and now newly elected Liverpool City Councillor came back to Fazakerley on Monday 6th June 2016 to take part in a School Council meeting with our council.
Anthony was a former school councillor for two years at Fazakerley and was a very active and dedicated member. Helping to get guest speakers in to visit the school and attend council meetings.
Anthony was very involved in local politics and would arrange for MPs such as Steve Rotherham and Stephen Twigg to come into Council meetings for question and answer sessions.
Anthony also asked Edwina Currie along to one of our meeting and to visit our school, we spent a day with Edwina and hosted a whole school questions and answers session with her, which was extremely interesting and entertaining.
We are all immensely proud that Anthony has followed his passion for politics and that he has been elected to be a City Councillor at such a young age.
We wish Anthony all the best with his political career and hope to see him again in the near future.
