School Council


What is a school council? 

A school council is group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. This can mean any kind of school-based group run by pupils including pupil forums and youth parliaments.

What does it do? 

A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets regularly to discuss school improvement and ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.

North Town School Council.

We encourage our children to take a full and active role in the life and development of the school. Our School Council is elected to represent our children at leadership level and ensure a “voice” for all children. They hold a substantial budget and express children’s views to the school’s leadership. They work particularly closely with staff on playground issues. 

Additionally, Playground Leaders encourage all children to take part in play activities and ensure the smooth running of lunchtimes for everyone.
