School Council

The School Council is a group of pupils who act as a link between staff and children. Their role is to put forward ideas of how we can improve our school, such as organising events, fundraising or suggesting after school clubs. We feel it is important that all children have a voice in our school.

Every September we hold elections to vote for a new School Council. Pupils who wish to become a school councillor must first write a letter to Mrs French explaining reasons why they would like to take on this important role. Next, the prospective councillors are invited to prepare a short statement about themselves which they share in front of their class. Everyone in the class votes for 2 pupils. The child with the most votes from each year group, is elected and given a special school councillor badge. There are six school councillors in total, from Year 1 to Year 6 and they meet fortnightly.


Our School council have the responsibility of being in charge of our weekly "Talking Lunch"; they pick a thunk for the children to discuss over lunch- this is published on our weekly newsletter- and then help and guide the discussions on Tuesdays.
