School Council

Our School Council is a group of children elected 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. The purpose of our School Council is to raise issues, represent views of our children, conduct surveys and meet with our 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. 

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. 

Elections have taken place to elect this year's school council, and they are very excited to get started. They have had their first meeting, when Mrs Needham told them that their first project would involve working with Royd Nursery Infant School, on a joint initiative looking at how to improve road safety in our area. They have also attending a meeting with Sheffield City Council on road safety.


Before Christmas, as part of their project on road safety, they launched a Road Safety Poster competition.  In a recent meeting, all entries were judged and together they decided upon a winner.
