Our school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. It is an important and useful way to provide leadership and development opportunities for our pupils.

This year our local MP, Peter Bone came in to support us with our Student Council elections and to tell us about his work at the Houses of Parliament. He taught the children how to ask a question, as MPs do in the House of Common, and showed us how the voting system works in Parliament. The pupils enjoyed Mr Bone’s visit and learned a lot - it inspired many of them to stand for election for our School Council. We had over 50 children who were nominated by their classes to stand for election. All pupils registered to vote and the hall was set up as a polling station with special booths so their votes were kept secret. There were a total of 122 votes cast which were counted and verified.   

Congratulations to the following children who were elected:

Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to issues discussed. They are currently working on improving recycling in school and writing new rules to make our lunch times run more smoothly.
