School Council

What does our school council do?


Our school council is a formal group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the headteacher and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to pupil voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as planning charity events, representing the school at outside events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Members of our council are elected annually by the other children. Our school council does a number of things:

  • The school council usually meets with a member of staff to have discussions about how we can improve things in school for all children and staff. These could include: school lunches, learning opportunities or ideas for fundraising events.

  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed upon, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with staff or governors.

  • Each year, every class will normally elect two representatives to be members of the school council.
