Huntstanton Primary

School Council

School Council general overview

At Hunstanton Primary School, children are at the heart of our school community.

As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development and daily life of the school.

The School Council is made up of 2 representatives from each year group and is run by Miss Jones. In September, pupils are selected by their peers and voted in.

What will be expected of the school council representative?

  • They will be responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council so that all children in our school can have their say.

  • They will bring new ideas forward as to how we can improve our school and local environment.

  • They will sometimes come to the meetings with ideas of fund raising for the school and for other local or national charities.

  • They will identify the priorities and lead the initiative to enhance what we do as a school.

We want to make sure that our school is:

  • a safe and happy place for children

  • a place where children can voice their concerns

  • a place where we encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements

  • a place where suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.

Some of the great things the  school council have done so far!

  • Developing the aims for the school with Governors  and staff.

  • Introducing games for break time and lunchtime play.

  • Hosting and visiting School Council conferences.

  • Meeting HRH Prince Edward and Sophie when they came to open the new   building.

  • Raising money for the outdoor playground equipment like the activity wall.
