Role & Activities

In September, each class in the school elects a captain and a vice captain. Each class votes for the candidate who they think will represent them best.

The council is given a small budget of £300 each year to spend as they wish but this must help to improve the school.

The School Council meets with Mrs Wells and they discuss issues to do with the school.

The School Council takes part in the appointment of new staff at the school. They form an interview panel and ask questions of the candidates and provide feedback to the Governors and Senior Leadership Team to inform the final decision about who will be appointed.

They decide their own questions which can be quite challenging.

During the year the School Council collects the views of all the pupils. Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils.


Our first event this year is the organising and running of Children in Need
