Pupil Council and Pupil Voice

The Pupil Council  serves as a democratically elected body and a voice for the children in our school.

Candidates have to deliver a speech and give reasons as to why they are the best candidates to represent their class. Pupil Council membership runs from Years 2 – 6. Classes vote for a boy and girl representative. This system of elections is held every year with an opportunity for new members to run for a position.

Children learn how a meeting runs and how a Council can be effective. They elect a leadership team to guide and direct meetings, the agenda and aims throughout the coming year. This leadership consists of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

Minutes are recorded by the secretary and the children take their roles very seriously.

 This year, the Pupil Council aim to achieve:

  • Improving the school with everyone's ideas and comments
  • Making our school a happy, clean and safe environment for our pupils, teachers and visitors
  • Promoting British Values
