School Council


Welcome to our school council

Our school council is a group of students who are elected by the student body to represent the views of all pupils and to help improve their school.  Our school Council comprises of 2 pupils from Primary 4 through to Primary 7.
What are the aims of the school council?
  • To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place for children.
  • To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.
  • To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
  • To make sure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon. Each Month the school council meets, with Mrs Bradley - to voice, discuss, share and implement pupil’s ideas or concerns.
