What makes our School Council successful?

Our School Council is one that represents the views of all pupils and gets things done. To enable us to be successful we..... 

  • Have a weekly meeting.
  • Have a council that is not too big.
  • Have leaders within our council - two Prime Ministers with specific duties. 
  • Have fantastic communication between our representatives and their classes.
  • Have systems for all pupils to commuincate to the school council. 
  • Use Class Dojo and the school newlstters to communicate with parents and carers.  
  • Are motivated, passionate, creative and driven. 

School Council Election - September 2022

At the beginning of September our School Council election was launched! During Collective Worship the children learnt about the role of the School Council, the qualities that would be needed to be a school councillor, how the election process would happen and some of their key responsibilities throughout the year. 

Then the fun started.... the children had two weeks to run their election campaigns! There was an election buzz throughout the school and we saw badges, posters, songs, stickers and power points. Some candidates even had election campaign managers! The children of Netherfield showed how dedicated, special and unique they are! 

The Year 6 candidates who were running for school Prime Minitser did a speech to the whole school explaining why we should vote for them. They were sensational! 

ALL the children who put themselves forward were incredible. Their courage, vision, confidence and commitment to making our school even better was inspiring. 

Then came election day, the children voted in their classes for the class representatives and the whole school voted for the Prime Minisiters. The votes were counted and the results were in!

We now have our fantastic School Council for the next year!
