School Council 2019 - 2020




 Image result for school council  heading


One representative is chosen from each class and will hold the post for the academic year. The School Council does a number of things:

  • They share the thoughts and views of their class with the rest of the Council.
  • They provide ideas for things that they would like to see happening in school and can request equipment and staff support to implement ideas.
  • The school council meets, with Mrs Pritchard – to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed.

What are the aims of the school council?


  • To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place for children.
  • To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.
  • To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
  • To make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.

What jobs are there?


Each year, an election day is held.  Pupils who wish to be on the school council put themselves forward, explaining why they would make a good school council representative.

On election day, every pupil from Year 1-6 votes for one candidate from each class who they wish to be on the school council.


The new council then elects officers such as:


  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Secretary

What makes our school council a good one?

“We want to make a difference”

“We will be good role models and treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves”

” We listen to other people”

“We make sure if anyone has a problem or an idea, they are heard”

“We will raise money for people who need our help”

“We will be up-standers and not let anyone be left out or bullied”

These are some things that make our school council effective:

  • Regular meetings
  • A council that is not too big
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
  • Work with visitors (from our community) and teachers on specific events or issues

New Headteacher Interview
Mrs Evans visited School Council to help us with the  questions we could ask in our upcoming headteacher interview. 
Mrs Evans helped us to think about  questions we could ask. We know this is a very important job we are doing so we want to make sure we ask the correct questions. Here are some questions we might ask:
  • What activities should we have in our school and why?
  • How would you make our school better?
  • How do you help children have fun?

Acts of
In order to spread kindness and teach students the value of doing a kind act for others our   School Councillors and teachers visited Broadway Nursing Home and Asda, Walton.  We wanted  to spread a little bit of kindness to others by giving them a gift of a bookmark and some chocolate. 
We would like to thank the management, nursing staff and residents of Broadway Nursing home for letting us visit them.  We loved meeting everyone and were so honoured to meet a lady who was 102 years old and a gentleman who sang to us in Latin.
A big thanks to Mrs Lorraine Ambrose who is Community Champion Leader for Asda, Walton, for  allowing us to visit.  We met some new friends who were celebrating Holi Festival and customers who made us feel very welcome.
Thank you and remember to share your kindness to others.
