School Councils


‘Every child has a Voice’.

Each year, voting takes place in every classroom for the children who have campaigned to be elected to the School Council.


What is a School Council?

A School Council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their School.


What does it do?

A School Council meets (with a teacher present) to discuss and sort out problems and ideas.  Members of the School Council will be responsible for carrying out ideas that they have agreed, such as planning charity events, school workshops and meeting with Mrs Harris to discuss their ideas.


What makes a good School Council?

A good School Council is one that represents the views of the children and gets things done. These are some of the things that make our School Council effective:-

  • Regular meetings
  • Good communication between representatives and their class.
  • Smaller groups (sub-committees) working on specific events or issues.


School Council will meet once a fortnight.



The School Councillors are supported by Miss Payne, year 6 teacher.
