School Council

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


Each year we are run school council as an after school club. Each class will be asked to elect just one school council member to attend this club. In the next term, the representative can either choose to stand again or they can decide to stand down. If there is more than one class member wishing to stand then candidates give a short speech saying why they think they are the best candidate – following which there will be an anonymous class election.



So far this year, School Council have

  • organised a 'PJs for Pudsey' fundraising day as part of raising money for a UK charity. The children designed posters to promote the day and encouraged children in their classes to bring in donations in exchange for wearing their pyjamas and onesies. The impact of this was that we raised just over £700.
  • Suggested 'Young Carers' as a charity to be supported by collections following all of the Christmas performances, raising just over £500.
  • The children worked in teams to design their own badges to show that they are a member of the School Council. These are being made by a company and will be delivered shortly. The impact of this was that they children have taken ownership over how they are portrayed in the school.


In order to address the on-going litter problem in our school, the children decided to create their own Litter song to the tune of ’10 Green bottles’ They then sang this in both Celebration assemblies to the whole school. They then designed stickers to give to their classmates when they were seen being eco-friendly in the playground. The ongoing impact of this is to reduce the amount of litter being left in our outside areas.


What next?

School Council will be working on three projects for the rest of the term:

  • Recycling
  • Anti-Bullying
