School Council

What is a School Council?


A school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and raise issues with your headteacher in the school.

The school council can also take forward projects on behalf of the pupils, and be involved in planning and things like interviewing staff.  To be effective, the school council must:


  • Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible

  • Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views

  • Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views

  • Make things happen – or explain why they can’t! 

Our School Council for 2023-2024 

The New Quiet Area

This year in School Council, we helped improve the condition of the outside area. We have changed the school quiet area by moving the location and replacing the furniture. We also have sourced lots of new resources and games for everyone to enjoy.

March Update

The Quiet Area is now finished! Miss Chapman, Mr McHugh and the School Council have worked really hard to create a space for the pupils to enjoy and appreciate the new games, stationery and furniture. It was officially opened by Mr McHugh (he got to cut the ribbon!) and Miss Chapman did a speech. We hope that the children can value this amazing new area and enjoy their time there.

Three Year Plan

This is the outdoor improvement plan made by the 2021-22 School Council for the next three years. They have come up with ideas at meetings and collected ideas from their classmates. If you have ideas or ways you can help us achieve our plans, please contact Mrs Wright via the school office.
