School Council

Mrs Carter leads our active School Council. We will be busy throughout the school year, working together on exciting projects. Keep reading for information about our journey so far this year! 

Although the pupils at our school are young, we believe that their ideas and opinions are very important. We have a school council which gives the children a platform for their voices to be heard. The School Council comprises of two children from each class, elected by their classmates.


The aims of the school council . . . 


1. To help make school life better for everyone.

2. To care for everyone in our school community.

3. To give pupils a voice and a way of helping to make decisions in school.


The school council have been involved in many areas including writing a school prayer and providing valuable feedback about school dinners and whole school play-times .

In December we had a School Council meeting with Miss Aston and spoke to her about our ideas for the playground.

Each class has 2 representatives. In Reception this is one boy and one girl. In Key Stage One representatives comprise of  two children from each class. Mrs Carter helps the children in the school council.
