We have had several School Council meetings so far this term. At the moment we are finding out likes, dislikes and possible improvements for our lunchtimes.

We are also investigating where our missing playground equipment could be stored safely at breaktimes.

Keep using your Pupil Voice in class, voicing your own ideas.

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.


The council meets at least once a fortnight to discuss issues raised through class discussion and to give the children an opportunity to share their ideas about proposed improvements to the school. The Council makes a valuable contribution towards the continued success of our School.


At the start of the academic year, children wishing to stand for the school council present a short speech to their class. In line with the British value of democracy,there is then an  election and two representatives are chosen to be the school councillors for that academic year.


In School Council meetings, all councillors have the opportunity to raise issues and put forward ideas. Any decisions to be made are done with a vote by a show of hands and these are recorded.
