School Council


Our school council is very important to us. We have meetings every month to discuss matters that will make a difference to life in school. We sometimes plan activities that are designed to raise money for a charity. We even have a bank account that contains money we can spend for school.


We can make a difference!



The aims of the School Council are;

  • to give pupils the opportunity to be involved in improving school life for everyone.
  • to enable pupils to work as partners with staff in developing and sustaining a caring school community.
  • to provide all pupils with opportunities to develop skills that will be important throughout their lives.
  • to involve pupils in solving problems and resolving conflicts.


The School Council

  • The School Council will be made up of one representative from each class.
  • Each class will elect a pupil to be their representative.
  • The School Council will meet once each half term.
  • Minutes will be taken of the School Council meetings. These will be distributed to classes to ensure everyone knows of the activities of their School Council.
  • The Chair of the School Council will arrange to discuss the outcome of meetings with the Headteacher as soon as possible after each meeting.


Responsibilities of School Councillors

  • Each classroom will have a suggestion folder in which pupils can record their suggestions/ideas. Councillors need to check the file.
  • Class representatives will report back to their class after every School Council meeting.
  • A class meeting will be held prior to School Council meetings in order to produce an agenda for discussion at the School Council meeting.
  • Views collected from the class should go forward for discussion, not the opinions of individual councillors.
  • If a representative decides that they no longer wish to serve on the School Council elections can take place to elect a new representative.
  • The Chair of the School Council will be required to present feedback to the school during an Assembly.
  • Class representatives will serve for one school year.
