School Council

School Council


Our School Council is made up of 10 democratically elected pupils from year 2 to year 6.


They are thoughtful, innovative and kind individuals who want to make a real difference to the school.

The school council meets once every half term to discuss upcoming charity events, pupil suggestions and potential whole school activities.


Why have a school council?


Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.  Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.


The curriculum requires that young people are provided with opportunities to participate in school and society. School councils are an excellent way in which to increase participation, teaching young people about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.

Meeting Notes 


On Tuesday 13th September we held our first School Council meeting. The pupils all took the time to get to know each other. We discussed what would happen at meetings and what their role as School Council member would be. Each member was given their own school council book with an agenda, and a short activity to carry out back in their classes.  They are going to feed back during next weeks meeting.

Our next full meeting will be on the 20th September.


Children in Need 2021


On Friday the 19th November, the school council organised and led a charity fundraising day for Children in Need. 

The councillors organised a range of activities, including toast in the classroom, name the teddy and a lucky dip. Everyone had a great day and we raised lots of money for charity.
