School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.


Our School Council is made up of

11 children from year 2 to year 6 including our Nurture class.

A boy and a girl from year group.

We are elected by our class to represent the views and to provide a voice for all pupils to help make changes and improve the school.

How to become a School Councillor

Anyone can apply for the school council at the start of the year when the school council elections.  You must design a poster and present it to your class on why you would be a good member of the school council.  The children in the school will then vote in a secret ballot.  All votes are counted and verified by 2 members of staff. The successful candidates are informed and the plan for the year will begin.

Who we are and what we do

  • 1 chairperson
  • 1 vice chairperson
  • 1 minute taker

We meet on a regular basis with Mr Bentley who is the staff representative for the school council.  We discuss any ideas, problems or issues arising and put forward the views of the other pupils in the school via the suggestion boxes in every class or via coversations with pupils.  We help to organise fund raising events, check the learning and work alongside school governors and other members of the local community.

Recent project

Autumn Term:

ü 2 of our school council members from Year 5 attended the Super Ambassadors training at Llanciach Fawr Manor and now represent the school in the Rights of the Child.


  ü We promoted Children in Need day around the school.  We organised a non-uniform day where children donated £1 and also organised and ran stalls in the hall to raise even more money!  We are pleased to announce that we doubled last year's total and raised an impressive £259.79.  Diolch yn fawr to all of those who supported us!


            ü We have listened to the children and as a result of their suggestions we have installed mirrors in the bathrooms and put up new coat pegs to make more room in the cloakroom areas. The children are very happy with these changes and are continuing to suggest more improvements


Stay tuned for more exciting project news.
