School Council

  • At St Mary’s Infant School we have had an elected School Council of 8 -12 children (children from the Rainbow Class join in the Spring Term) since 2008.
  • The purpose of the School Council is to help our children to have a greater say over matters that affect their school and wider lives.
  • One boy and one girl from each class meet fortnightly with the INCo and a teaching assistant. The School Council governor also attends some meetings. Minutes from meetings are displayed in the dining room.
  • Pupil voice within school has impacted on whole school improvement in many ways – for example, children had a say in the choice of new outdoor play equipment, the naming of our new ‘Calm Room’ and what to put in it, and what to include in a whole school ‘Respect for All Charter’.  The School Council also interviewed candidates for the headship role in March 2012.
  • School Council children have helped to man a stall at the Christmas and Summer Fairs for a number of years.
  • All children are encouraged to contribute their ideas for topics for discussion in the Suggestions Box in the entrance area.
