School Council

Priestsic Parliament 

Our School Council is made up of one pupil from each class from Key Stage 1 and 2, who are democratically elected to represent the views of all pupils across school 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 school 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.
