School Council

The School Council is a body of children elected by their peers in a democratic election process. It represents the views of all the children and considers ways to improve the school. The School Council is made up of representatives from each class from Y2 to Y6 who discuss matters about their learning and school life. The Council discusses recent issues put forward by their peers, and plan whole school events such as Comic Relief, Red Nose Day, and Remembrance Week. The Council has been crucial for fundraising across the school and has been pivotal in raising thousands of pounds for excellent causes.

The aim of the council is to make changes in our school and community, and to give children the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them. Children are encouraged to have a voice in decisions and to play an active role in making their school a better place for all.

The role of the School Council is to:

  • Listen to the views of their class and represent these ideas and views during school council meetings.
  • Feedback key issues from these meetings to their class.
  • Meet weekly to work on current projects and discuss key issues.
