School Councillors

We believe School Councillors play a vital part in ongoing school improvement and within our community. They represent the views of all pupils and make decisions on their behalf.

Decisions are made about the curriculum and learning, supporting good attitudes to learning, the school environment and community events. In addition councillors have identified a range of charities that the school supports during the year. Their three sub-committees reflect these areas of involvement.

Every September children in Years 4, 5 and 6 vote for two girls and two boys in their year groups. They visit the Houses of Parliament (in addition to a class trip) to further explore democracy and representation. The roles and responsibilities of school councillors (as agreed by councillors themselves) are:

  • Listen to others
  • Respect different views
  • Set an example using our Be the Best you can Be! values
  • Help to make the school even better
  • Represent the school well.
