Pupil Council

Our Pupil Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

Aims of the Pupil Council

  • To discuss ideas and think of possible solutions.
  • To listen to all pupils in school and represent their needs at council meetings.
  • To help with fundraising events.
  • To share ideas with pupils and teachers in school.
  • To help make important decisions.
  • To put forward ideas.
  • To work together as a team.

How did we become Pupil Council Members?

We were encouraged to make a speech to our classmates about why we would make good Pupil Council members and we shared some of our ideas. Then, every person nominated a two people who they thought had the right qualities to be a Pupil Council member. The votes were counted and the children who had the most votes became Council members.
