School Council

Leaders develop pupils’ wider skills, for example by giving them responsible roles such as well-being leaders for younger pupils. – Ofsted, November 2022

The School Council is made up of two children from each year group in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. They are elected at the beginning of each school year by their fellow class members. Our school council ensures that every child at Springcroft Primary School has a say in what happens in their school. All pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account to make a difference to our school.  Having a school council also ensures that we promote and experience the British Value of ‘Democracy’ alongside all our school values, especially ‘Collective Responsibility.’

Our curriculum will give children the opportunity to:

  • contribute to planning their own learning
  • make a positive contribution to the school and local community
  • take part in age-appropriate discussions
  • express their opinions on a range of different topics and issues
  • make choices about things that are important to them

Our 2023/24 School Council members are:

Year 1 Caiden and Fabianne
Year 2 Leo and Amelia
Year 3 Lottie and Emmi
Year 4 Freddie and Jack
Year 5 Isla and Archie
Year 6 Billy and Harrison
Secretary Sophie G
Treasurer Nicole

The Council meet once a month to discuss the cares and concerns from the children across the school. These include many aspects of school life, including school rules, how to improve our school environment and pupil activities.

All the representatives report back to their class after the meetings to let everyone know about any decisions that have been made.  Last year, the School Council worked hard to improve playtimes and lunchtimes by selecting and ordering new playground equipment for everybody to play with and enjoy.

Pupils relish the opportunities to take on the many roles and responsibilities that are available to them. The house captains, well-being champions and play-leaders take their roles seriously. They are given training to fulfil their roles to the best of their abilities. (Ofsted, November 2021).
