Return to Children

School Council

Our School Council members include two representatives from each class, from Reception to Year 6, and Mrs Pollard – our headteacher.  The children are elected by their classmates, and their role is to discuss views and opinions on a variety of issues.

The School Council meets regularly (about six times each term), and is frequently joined by one of our School Governors.

The aims of the School Council are:

  • To promote children’s views about issues which affect the life of the school both in the present and in the future
  • To help the people who make decisions in the school understand and respect children’s points of view
  • To give children an opportunity to understand and participate in a democratic process
  • To encourage children to understand rights and responsibilities in everyday life.
  • To give children the opportunity to discuss learning and achievements
  • To undertake projects that will improve the quality of the school, and the wider community.

Recent issues under discussion have included:

  • Use of the School Grounds
  • After School Clubs
  • School and playground equipment
  • School and community fundraising
