Student Council 2018-19

The Student 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 Student 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 Student Council, as they run the meetings as Chair and Vice Chair. All student 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.

Student Council Suggestion Box

The Student Council have made a box for the school so that everyone can give their suggestions. Half of the week the juniors will write post it notes with ideas of things that they would like and then the other half of the week the infants do the same. This box helps the children to gather ideas and collectively witness what the children of St Mary's want. 

Ideas So Far

The Student Council have been sorting out the ideas from the suggestion box and realised that many of the children, especially year 6's, wanted to sit on benches during assembly times. The Student Council passed this information on and now their wish has been granted! 
The Student Council also realised that many children wanted a lot more equipment for break times. As a result, the Student Council have asked the school for a list of objects from the catalogue. They chose these together and discussed if objects would be useful or not at playtimes. 
The Student Council realised that many people wanted to buy larger objects for the school, thus resulting in the Student Council deciding to hold a pyjama day to raise money. This event will be happening in the upcoming half term.
