School Council

Our School Council comprises of representatives from all of our Key Stage 2 classes, who have been voted into the role by their peers. Our aims are to empower our children by giving them autonomy over decisions within our school and to develop our sense of community. Our members are committed to our school and are excited to make a difference. 

We have our Head Girl and Head Boy, along with a Secretary and Treasurer from Year 6.

Four council members from Year 5 and two each from Years 4 and 3. 

The role of a School Council member:

  • Attend half termly meetings with other School Council members from each class
  • Take ideas and suggestions your class have to discuss at School Council meetings
  • Bring back ideas, information and suggestions to your class to listen, discuss, share their views and, where necessary, vote on actions that need to be taken
  • Help to organise charity events throughout the year
  • Encourage the pupils in your class to be aware of their school environment and to respect and care for it

In order to be a successful School Council member, you will need to be:

  • reliable
  • proud of our school and want our school to be the best it can be
  • listen carefully to the views of others and take their ideas on board
  • represent the majority view of your class, even if you don’t agree!
