About the School Council

What is the School Council?

The School Council is a group of children, two from each class, who have been chosen to represent our school. When a decision needs to be made, our head teacher, Mrs Blackburne-Maze, holds a meeting with the School Council to see what their opinion is.

I am pleased to say that the school council and the pupil collective worship group will also restart. Our school council is made up of children from Year 2 to Year 6 and will meet with me on a regular basis to help make decisions about he school. Our members this year are: Sophie & Ashton, Anna & Holden, Jessica & Adam, Kayden and Oliver.


Who is in the School Council?

Every year, pupils from Year Two to Year Six decide who they think deserves to help make important decisions for the school. There are two Co-chairs who help lead the meeting; they are the previous year’s Year Five representatives. There are twelve members on the School Council.

The current School Council members are:

  • Skylarks (Year 6): Sophie and Ashton

  • Hawks (Year 5): Anna and Holden

  • Wrens (Year 4): Jessica and Adam

  • Blackbirds (Year 3): Kayden and Oliver

  • Puffins and Lapwings (Year 2): To be announced.

  • How can you join?

    When it is time to allocate new members, you can put yourself forward and each class will vote for their representatives. You are only allowed to be in the School Council once in your time at school, unless you are elected in Year Five, when you stay an extra year as Co-chair in Year Six. 

    How often do the School Council meet?  

    The head teacher decides when it meets; it’s normally twice a month on a Wednesday or Thursday.


  • We helped decide on the menu for the school dinner. The majority agreed Fish and Chips should stay!

  • We chose new outdoor equipment: footballs, tennis balls and rackets, hoola-hoops and French skipping.

  • We help to write letters (just like this one!).

  • We take in our class’s suggestions and help make them happen.

    Going forward

  • We initially were going to paint the benches in the playground, however we are unsure whether or not this will happen.
