School Council

Welcome to our School Council webpage.

St. Peter's School Council is GOLD!

In previous years the School Council has worked really hard to earn Effective School Council Gold status and the new School Council is looking forward to taking us even further along our journey!

Our New School Council

To begin the school year, the children have been learning about democracy in Britain and how we can use this in School.

We have had an exciting start to the year with our very own secret ballot. Each class nominated five candidates to run for School Council. Those candidates have done a fantastic job creating posters and giving a speech in class, making their values clear to their peers.

All the children had the opportunity to vote for their class representative. Years One to Six went into the hall and voted. The children had to carefully choose their candidate based on the candidate’s values.

Well done to all the children that ran for School Council. You did a fantastic job, and made your class and St Peter’s C.E. Primary School very proud.

Congratulations to all the children that are now the newest members of our School Council.

How to keep involved

Make sure to tell your Class Representative about any concerns or suggestions, so that they can bring these ideas to School Council Meetings.  We'll let you know when meetings are on our display in the Hall, or you can check the Events page on the website. We will then discuss these and pass on any great ideas to Mr Whelan!

Our Plans for This Year

The new School Council wants to make sure your voice is heard, but we also have responsibilities to the community around St. Peter's. In our recent meeting, the School Council have discussed a new project which they would like to work on over the school year. We will keep you updated on the development of this project and how you can help.
