School Council

Our School Council is made up of one pupil from each class in Key Stage 2 who are democratically elected to represent the views of all pupils and they work together to make Priestsic an even better school. School Council members meet to discuss many different aspects of school life and have a big say in how our school is run.

How do I get elected if I want to become part of the School Council?

Elections for the School Council are held every year in the autumn term. If you have  served on the School Council previously, we ask that you do not stand again, as we like to give different children the chance to take part.

At School Council election time, all children in Key Stage 2 are invited to stand if they are interested. You will need to prepare a short speech to persuade class members to vote for you! Share with your class all the reasons why you would make a great Class Councillor – perhaps you are full of good ideas, a good listener, maybe you are good at organising events and enthusiastic about our school.

After you have shared your ideas with your class, everyone in your class will be asked to vote. The elections for School Council are a good example of democracy; this means everyone in your class has the chance to be involved in deciding who will be the Class Councillors, as everyone has a vote.  Our elections run just like the General Election that decides who is in government for the country.

Our new School council 2017-2018

Our new School council 2017-2018 1

Each year our pupils elect a new School Council.
Children are invited to put themselves forward as class representatives, with many of the older children preparing a presentation to the class on why they should be elected.
Class members each have a vote and one representative is elected from each class.
The School Council meets with the Headteachers at least once each half-term, and has their very own meeting room in 8a.


The School Council is now in it's eighth year, and previously has contributed towards

  •  The School Behaviour Policy
  •  The introduction of Family Dining at lunch-time
  •  Ideas for the refurbishment of pupil toilets in school
  • Ideas for improved play time provision
  • School's Anti-Bullying Policy
  • A new school logo design
  • Pupil engagement in reading across the whole school

Each School Council also undertakes a Health and Safety Inspection, as we believe it is important to consider the safety of the school buildings and site from the pupil's point of view.
This report is then shared with the Governing Body.
Class elections have now taken place for school council representatives for the academic year 2017/18. Our new members are receiving their school council badges, notebooks and pens in celebration assemblies.

Our School Council Representatives have been elected for the academic year 2015/16.

This year we have decided to also include two extra representatives from Year 6.

In October our School Council met with Hugh Murdoch from Maun Valley Citizens to identify areas within the local community which need to be improved. The School Council will be collecting views from their class members on this topic.
