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.

In their first meeting, with Miss Jones and Mrs Needham, the children have been given their first task of finding out what play equipment they would like to see outside. 



On the 15th November, our School Council were invited to a visit to 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.
