School Council


Our school council are elected each year through a formal election process consisting of children from year 1 to 6.The children that would like to be appointed give a short presentation to their class; this is followed by a ballot choosing a captain and vice-captain from each class as representatives. Year 6 take on the roles of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. They minute take all meetings.

These representatives attend regular council meetings. They discuss a variety of ideas, views and concerns that have been expressed to them by their classmates.

  • Projects are brought to the school council by staff members for consideration, all matters are open to debate by the council and are often taken back to their own class for collection of viewpoints so a final decision can be made by the council.Over the past few years we have:Assisted in appointing Learning Assistants and Lunchtime Supervisors
