School Council

At Park End Primary, we understand the importance of pupil voice and trust the children to help us make the decisions that shape our school and make it the way that they want it to be.

Children from Year 3 to Year 6 engage with the democratic process to elect representatives onto our School Council each year.

Once elected, the school councillors are given specific roles. Their responsibilities include:

  • fundraising
  • mentoring younger pupils
  • improving inclusion
  • contibuting to discussions around healthy schools
  • working in the Eco shop
  • lookin after the school environment e.g. organising litter picking
  • collecting and collating team points linked to the school’s values
  • helping the school community such as helping pupils plant seeds and bulbs

The children who make up the School Council are an important part of our leadership team. We meet every two weeks to discuss issues raised during class discussion and we decide how we are going to help to move things forward.

School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run; it is after all their school. We respect and value the thoughts and opinions of our children and whilst it may not always be possible or practical to do everything they suggest; the children do have some fantastic ideas and are able to accept why some ideas may not work well for the school community.

The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made within school.

Minister roles are as follows:

What have we achieved so far?
