School Council

Our School Council


Thank you to all those children who applied for the position of school councillor. Mr Bramall, the Chair of Governors, and Mrs Smyth were impressed by the number and exceptional quality of the applications they received. Unfortunately, there are only six positions available, so during Thursday’s assembly, the names of all the applicants were put into a hat and six were drawn out.


We’d like to congratulate the following lucky children on having their names successfully pulled out of the hat and wish them well in their new role as school councillors:





  • Our school councillors aim to

  • attend meetings on time
  • wear and take care of their school council badges
  • be sensible and act as good role models to other students
  • be helpful, kind and polite to other students and staff
  • assist Mrs Smyth, the Governors and their peers in ventures set to make our school an even better place to learn and play
  • collect and voice the thoughts, views and opinions of their peers


I’m sure they will do a fantastic job!



The school councillors kicked off the new term helping out at the ‘Happy New Year’ discos.  They were very proactive helping to distribute refreshments to all the children and clearing up afterwards.  They helped with the games and encouraged the little ones to get up and have a dance!  The discos were a huge success and all credit to the councillors who gave up their time to help.


They have continued a very important job handed over from our last school councillors.  Each playtime the councillors have been looking for children showing good manners, outstanding politeness and courteous conduct in return for a certificate! Children love to receive these certificates which encourages happier playtimes. Our eagle eyed councillors are on the look out to present their next certificate – Could it be you?


In preparation of the better weather Mrs Armitage asked the school councillors if they could sort out the playtime jigsaws which were in a bit of a mess!  Always happy to help and solve a problem they quickly set about the task of making up each jigsaw and colour coding the pieces to a matching wallet so it is easier to put them away at the end of playtime. They have also made a log of all the jigsaws and any pieces that are missing to make it easier for the children putting them away and Mrs Armitage – a job well done school councillors!


You can always come along and see what they have been up to on the School Council board situated on the corridor outside Mrs Smyth’s office.  Here you can also find forms to complete with any suggestions or ideas you may have for the school councillors to implement in school.


Keep up the fantastic work next term School Councillors!
