School Council 2022-23
The School Council have now been elected from Reception to Year 6. Staff support from Mr Whittaker and Mrs Bishop.
We have started our meetings with our two representatives from each class and please see below to find out our members.
Autumn Term Considerations
Updates from our initial School Council meetings in the Autumn Term include:
Creating a healthy packed lunch policy
Lunchtime Always Expectations and positive behaviour
Extra-curricular clubs – what more can we offer?
Main playground renovation
Whole-school fun days, like watching the World Cup!
A whole-school trip
So far we have worked on creating a healthy packed lunch policy. The children of the School Council discussed and researched what a healthy and balanced lunch should contain. We then agreed on how to share this and promote the importance and benefits of healthy eating throughout school. We have planned a special assembly to share this information with the rest of the school.
Also, we looked at ways to reward positive behaviour at lunchtimes. We have developed a new system whereby children are given tokens to put into a giant letter that represents their House – Bevan, Daniels, Jones or Ireland. At the end of each half-term, the House with the most tokens will receive a special treat during House Assembly.
What do School Council do?
Two pupils from each class represent their year group on our School Council. The School Council meets with Mrs Glynn regularly over the school year to consider how to make our school even better.
The school councillors are elected by the children in their class:
- They go to school council meetings and take part in discussions
- They let the class know what has been discussed at the meetings
- They take the views of their classmates to the school council
- They are involved in projects that the school council runs.
A School Councillor is...
- committed and determined to make a difference

- ready to talk to children and staff about the school council
- willing to learn new skills
- excited about ideas and things that the school council can do
- able to listen to other children’s' views and understands them
- caring about school and wants to improve it.
