School Council


What is a school council?

The Hindley Junior and Infant School Council is a group of children who are elected by their peers to represent the views of all pupils and to improve our school.  Elections take place yearly, so that our pupils can see democracy in action. Our school council is made up of 2 children from each year group, from Year 1 upwards.

What does it involve?

The job of the School Council is to help make decisions in school and to be a voice of the children by representing the views of all pupils. They are responsible for carrying out the ideas and actions that they have agreed upon. They should be the voice of their classmates!

The School Council meets with Miss Egan regularly to discuss issues and make decisions.  These may include such things as: improvements to school & play times, ideas for charity fundraising days & hosting competitions. Members of the School Council Leadership Team will be responsible for carrying out ideas that they have agreed, such as planning charity events, school workshops, meeting with Governors or other communities and putting forward views of other children in the School.


What makes a good School Council Team?

A good School Council is one that represents the views of the children and gets things done. These are some of the things that make our School Council Leadership Team effective:

  • We have regular meetings.
  • We respect everyone’s contributions and ideas.
  • We have good communication between representatives and their classes.
  • We get things done to improve school for everyone!

Who is our school council?

The School Council is an exciting and meaningful part of school, and the children who are elected are very proud of their responsibilities. Our School Council does a fantastic job, and we are very proud of our children that take part!
