School Council

A school council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

What does it do?

A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets – with a teacher present – to discuss issues and problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events
  • They then feed back to their classes
  • Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as organising activities, 

What jobs are there?

Each year, every class will elect 2 representatives to be members of the school council.

The council will then meet regularly to discuss ideas and concerns as raised by their class. Jobs from these meetings will then be delegated to particular children, based on their own interest in the project. 

What are our aims?

Our school council is one that represents the views of all students and gets things done.

We strive to have:-

  • Regular meetings
  • A council that is not too big
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
  • Training for school council members
  • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific events or issues
  • A budget (however small)
  • Annual evaluations

The School Council have been involved in interviewing the new Headteacher, they vote on the selection of the school charity and helped with the organisation of the behaviour policy. They also helped organise Sports Relief and Children in Need for the school. 

We are currently working on improving our school's outside area with our Reflection Garden Project. 

What have we been doing?

Our biggest project this year (2022-23) is going to be the Reflection Garden. 

We wanted to make a space to grow plants, give habitats to wildlife and an area for us to enjoy and relax in.


The Big Dig: Part 1

On a cold and wet Saturday in November, parent and children volunteers came to the school early to begin work on our new Reflection Garden.

We managed to mark out and dig several new planter areas, as well as a brand new hole for a brand new pond.

We also managed to clear much of the rubbish and old wood away from the garden area so that we can begin planting in the spring.

The Mayor of Ashford, Jenny Webb, even turned up with a donation of £100 for the garden as well!

Thank you and well done to all our volunteers. 

We are looking forward to the next installment!
