Our School Council meets every two weeks and has two representatives from each year group in classes 2, 3 and 4 who are elected by their peers. Members are elected twice a year following the British Value of democracy.
It encourages pupils to take an active part in developing our school and to have a voice. This important role gives children the opportunity to put forward ideas, work co-operatively and gain a greater sense of belonging to our local and global community. The School Council works on projects both within the school and also with a national, global and charity based focus.
The School Council is led by Mrs Hirst.

What our reps say:
“It means a lot to me to be a school councillor because we get to make important decisions about the school.”
“I’ve wanted to be on school council for ages because I think it is important for children to help decide how to make the school a better place.”
“I am proud of the fact that the school council have organised various events to build the feeling of community, add a little fun and raise money for people less fortunate than ourselves. These include: a talent contest and Red Nose Day where we all dressed in red.”
“I am proud of being a school councillor because we’ve helped to make playtimes more fun by choosing new play equipment like a trapeze.”
“The best thing about the school council meeting s is that we get to share our ideas and then we can combine these ideas to make REALLY great ideas.”
