Welcome to our School Council.

Children are at the heart of our school community. As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development of the school.

Councillors are encouraged in developing skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation.
The School Council is made up of 2 representatives from each class. They are elected by their peers to represent their class during elections held in September. Being a school councillor is a very responsible position as they have to have a lot of sensible ideas and take
on projects in their spare time.

  • The Council are responsible for the on-going process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council.
  • They bring new ideas forward for how we can improve our school and local environment. They come to meetings with ideas of fundraising for the school and for other local charities.
        • A monthly newsletter is produced by the Council to keep all students informed of what is happening throughout school.


We look forward to another exciting and successful year with ideas and suggestions from our councillors as they continue to support improvements in our school.
