Student Council

Student Council

Our Student Council is elected by a democratic vote in each class.  The student councillors meet regularly to provide opinions and ideas which help the Head Teacher, school staff, school governors, parish councillors and even local house builders reach decisions that take account of what the pupils themselves think. Our Student Council has twice in recent years been instrumental in persuading local housing developers which street names to adopt. Pupils are very keen on fairness and learn to understand how they can influence decisions.

A pupil in Y2 recently commented: “I don’t like it when we don’t get to vote on decisions, it makes it not fair because I didn’t get to have my say on it.”


Autumn Term 2021

The Student Council met to discuss how best to use our fabulous grounds at playtimes and lunchtimes. They thought of a fantastic idea to use flags to enable children to know when it is safe to use the grass field. 

They are keen to make more use of the school library by offering children the chance to visit during their lunch break on a rota system.

They also thought of lots of ways that classes could raise money for Molly Olly's Wishes this year and are taking their ideas back to classes.

Spring Term 2020

The Student Council met with three members of the Governing Body to help them find out the pupils' views on a range of issues.

The Student Council is conducting a survey about school dinners. Results of the survey will be shared with our new cook and the catering service.


The pupils are also finding out what each class would like to buy with £20 donated by the PTA for their weekly 'golden time' treat.

The Student Council has already made a splash with their choice of designs for the newly repainted playground.

The Student Council has also met with some of the governors who wanted pupils' ideas about the Sports Grant spending in the school. This helped the Head Teacher and governors make a decision which will affect everyone in the future with new playground markings to engage everyone in staying fit, active and busy at playtimes.

The Student Council also consults with other decision makers. The children  have met with parish councillors to explain their ideas for a bid the parish is making to obtain funds to provide new play equipment elsewhere in the parish. 

A permanent legacy has now been left by a recent Student Council group who persuaded the Parish Council and Bloor Homes to name the new streets in the 'Oakley Meadow' development after the soldiers from this village who died in WWI.

If you have an idea about how our school can be even better, just speak to your class representative.
