School Council

Our school council meets to discuss important issues in our academy. All years from EYFS-6 are represented, with the children looking for ways to improve our academy even further and provide a voice for all pupils.
Children also represent St Uny at the national 'Younger Leadership Forum' in collaboration with the Diocese.
