This year, we have done the following…
- Provided ideas and the structure for fundraising for the Winter and Easter Fayres
- Decided how to improve school grounds.
- Identified how we want to improve our provision at lunchtimes.
What a school council do?
A school council does a number of things:
- The school council meets every half term to discuss and sort out problems. These may include things such as, behaviour and rewards of pupils and ideas for fundraising events.
- Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning an activity, writing an article, or meeting with Mr Roddison to share ideas.
What is a school council?
A school council is group of students who are elected by their class to represent the views of all pupils and to improve our school. Each year, every class will elect either 2 representatives to be members of the school council. There are different roles within the school council that members are then considered and apply for, including chair and treasurer.

These are some things that make a council effective:
- regular meetings
