School Council

Our School Council plays an important part in discussing issues which affect our children.


Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:

  • Develop confidence and sense of responsibility 
  • Prepare them to play an active role as citizens
  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people
  • To have a 'voice' and to confidently share their opinions and ideas with others


Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:

  • A safe, happy and fair learning environment
  • An opportunity to voice their concerns and act upon them
  • An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school
  • An opportunity to experience and understand a democratic process
  • A sense of responsibility towards their school community and environment



Our school council is democratically elected. Any child from Reception to Year Two and stand for School Council. Each candidate prepares and presents a small speech and the class then votes for two children from each class to represent in the council. The council meets regularly and is led by school staff. 

The council helps to organise fundraising events, activities for significant events such as the King's Coronation and most importantly, ways in which we can become a more environmentally friendly school and community.
