School Council



Our School Council is a group of children from year 3 to year 6. We have two representatives from each class, a boy and a girl, who are elected on a yearly basis to represent their class. The council meets regularly to discuss issues which are relevant to our school. They represent views of our children, conduct surveys and meet with the Head Teacher, Senior Leadership team, Teachers and Governors.  It is important for us, as a school, to listen to the views of our pupils and take on board areas in which they believe we can improve.  The views and opinions of all children matter to us. 

When necessary they keep detailed minutes of each meeting and liaise with Miss Jones and Mrs Needham and other adults in the school community. All this helps to develop skills which will enable children to be effective citizens.

The school council is led by Mrs Needham. 

Our School Councillors wear their badges in school. This makes it easy for everyone to know who our councillors are so that pupils know who to go to if they have any suggestions or ideas on how our school can improve.

On the 15th November, our School Council were invited to visit Stocksbridge Town Hall. Whilst there they got to meet the Town Mayor, Councillor Julie Grocutt, who talked to the children about what the local council do to help improve things for the local residents. Such as, recently partitioning Sheffield City Council to get an extra bus stop near to Stocksbridge Park Steels ground. Also to get another dog dirt bin near to Fox Glen Park. Councillor Grocutt also mentioned a camera car patrolling the area to monitor parking issues near to school. 

Our School Councillors all had the opportunity to wear the Mayor's Chain of Office and were treated to juice and biscuits. 

Whilst at the Council Chambers, School Council voted for their Chair and Vice Chair. Congratulations to them both.

On Thursday 6th December, School Council organised a toy sale to help raise valuable funds for the school. 

Their first job was to write a letter to parents asking for donations of toys.  We were amazed by the generosity and received a huge amount. 



The next job was to sort the toys into categories and price them up ready for the big sale.   

On the day, School Council came in early and stayed after school to run the stall.
