School Council 2017-18

The School Council at St Mary’s Primary School are a team of dedicated, organised and proud children ranging from Year 2 to Year 6.

The selection of the School Council happens at the beginning of each academic year. One child from each class in years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are elected from a range of nominees. The Head Boy and Head Girl from year 6 also play an integral role within the School Council, as they run the meetings as Chair and Vice Chair. All school councillors wear a distinctive badge so that others are aware of their role. The team meet up regularly and the meetings are facilitated by Miss Carr and Miss Gorman.

  • We develop our school and ourselves by discussing ideas and making decisions, whilst respecting everyone’s views and opinions.
  • We work together, ensuring our school is the best place it can be.
  • We aim to make all pupils in our school feel happy and safe.

Work in Our Community - Spring Term 2018 

The Student Council are going to research different charities that they would like KS1 and KS2 to represent. They will go back to their classes and decide which charities they would like each Key Stage to represent.

The school will then decide from the different options which charity they would like to represent and raise money for.

The Student Council will then decide ways that the school can save money and fundraise for the chosen charity and then this money will be donated.

Current Ideas - Spring Term 2018

  • Car Boot Sale
  • Pyjama day/Own clothes day
  • Films in the hall
  • Talent Show (Children would audition and the Student Council would decide who would perform at the show. These shows would be performed per Key Stage and money would be raised by selling tickets.)

Improving Our School - Spring Term 2018

The School Council have been researching ideas from their peers as to what features they would like on the new KS1 climbing frame. They have then discussed these ideas with a representative from the company and have built a climbing frame they are happy with. They then negotiated a price with the representative.

This Trim Trail is soon to be under construction in the KS1 playground and the Student Council are very pleased with their hard work.

School Council - March 2018

The Student Council has been selling homemade knitted chickens to raise money for Francis House. They worked very hard and have raised a lot of money!
