Hindley Junior & Infant School Council Leadership Team


Every child has a Voice
Each year children apply for the role of school councillor in every classroom, for the children in Key Stage 1, they are chosen by the Class Teacher and their fellow peers.

What is a School Council Leadership Team?
A School Council Leadership Team is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

What does it involve?
Our School Council leadership Team meet every 2 weeks with Miss McKeever to discuss and sort out problems and ideas.  These may include school lunches, behaviour, business plans or ideas for fundraising events. 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 jobs are there within the School council, Leadership Team?
Each year, Miss McKeever elects one KS1 and two KS2 representatives from each class to be members of the School Council Leadership Team.  The team will then meet to elect officers such as:

  • Admin distributer
  • Chairperson
  • Vice-Chairperson
  • Secretary

What makes a good School Council Leadership Team?
A good School Council Leadership Team 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:

  • Regular meetings
  • Good communication between Representatives and their classes.
  • Smaller groups (sub-committees).

Do they get things done?
Good School Councils do get things done, our examples include:

  • Improved playground and field equipment;
  • Introduced a recycling area;
  • Introduced a new motto and sign;
  • Raised funds for different charities;
  • Purchased a defibrillator for our school.

Do you get out of lessons?
School Council meets fortnightly during lunch time, so valuable lesson time is not missed.
