School Council

The School Council was set up to enable the children here at Carlton Hill to have a say in the running of their own school. In this way, our children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work co-operatively for the good of others.

Our school council is made up of two representatives from Y1 to Y6. These members have to give election speeches to their class before voting takes place each October and February.

The elected members then represent the views of their classes at school council meetings, which are held every  three weeks.
We make an action plan in the Autumn term,which is based on the areas pupils said could be improved on our annual pupil surveys.  We decide which things we could change and think about who could help us make these changes.

We also have a suggestion box so other children can tell us about other areas they would like us to talk about.
After each meeting we have time to talk through the minutes of the meeting with our classes.  We also organise events like the talent show and take assembly sometimes.

What will we be doing this year?

This year  we will be working on some areas from our pupil questionnaires that the children said need improving . These inlcuded:

  • developing a school football team
  • work on anti-bullying 
  • More to play with on the field
  • More sports clubs
  • Tidier hallways
  • More range of Golden time clubs
  • all children getting help if they need it
  • Toilets cleaner

We have now decided we will focus on finding out more about the clubs children want in school, preparing for  the OPAL play project in the spring term,  planning for Anti-bullying week, and finding out more about why some children feel they need more help from teachers.  These will all be on our Action plan for the year.

As well as any areas we plan to improve over the year, we will be making sure that Golden time clubs change regularly and include the ideas from pupils, holding a talent show in the Spring term,  running some assemblies and taking part in fund raising over the year.
