School Council

School Council 

What is the School Council? 


  • Our school council represents the views of all pupils. It gives us the opportunity to make our voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
  • Our school council helps to make changes and improvements to try and make our school a nicer placer for everyone.
  • When we meet, everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas. Sometimes we have to talk to our headteacher and sometimes we talk with school visitors. 

What will our School Council do?


Our School Council meet regularly with Mrs Ramsden and Mrs Faben to discuss ideas and may be set the following tasks. These tasks may involve:


  • Collecting information from our class using a questionnaire 
  • Collecting new ideas from our class 
  • Asking our class their opinions
  • Presenting to the whole school 
  • Collecting information from our teachers 
  • Talking to school visitors 

Election Process


•Here at Hallam every class from EYFS to Year 6 chooses a representative to be a member of the school council.

•Before they are voted for, candidates have to give a speech to their class explaining why they want to be on the council and what ideas they have to bring. The class will then vote for their new elected member.
