School Council

Autumn Term 2022

Welcome to our School Council page where you can find out all about our current and previous School Council groups and projects. Each class member had the opportunity to put themselves forward to be elected as a member of the School Council. The class members then voted to decide on who they wanted to represent their class this year.

School Council Representatives:

  • Reception- Harry B and Grace M
  • Year 1- Georgia F and Samuel CB
  • Year 2- Lucas D and Faith V
  • Year 3- Skylar P and Leo A
  • Year 4- Daniel B and Danas M
  • Year 5- Maia L and Jacob M
  • Year 6- Yacoub A and Annabel L (Chair People who lead the School Council Meetings)

What we do:

The School Council meets every half term with a member of staff to discuss school events and changes. Pupils, staff, governors and parents/carers can talk to the School Council at any time to voice concerns or to share ideas about our school. The School Council Board displayed in school provides the latest updates to our pupils, staff and governors and topics will be updated here below on our website regularly for parents & carers:


Current Projects:

  • Parking issues around school. Before and after school, many cars park in restricted areas around school creating hazards for the public, staff and children. Therefore, the children have been discussing ways to prevent this from happening and to encourage more children to walk to school.
  • Buckshaw Primary School has recently changed their behaviour policy using a coloured coded chart enabling children to take ownership of their behaviour in school. Therefore, the School Council will be creating their own child friendly policy explaining the new behaviour system to the pupils of Buckshaw.
  • The school Council expressed some new ideas they would like to organise in school including a gardening club and looking after our school’s wildlife gardens; raising money for a KS1 library and for charities who have recently visited our school who had a huge impact on the children. The children came up with lots of fun ideas to raise money in the future and have agreed to create a proposal of ideas to be passed onto our Head Teacher, Mrs Price.
  • Last term, the school council created posters advertising for mental health ambassadors in school. These children will be representing the wellbeing in our school supporting their peers when needed. We had a lot of interest in school and therefore the school council will be moving this forward by selecting children who are interested.


How to Get in Touch:

School Council are always ready to listen but you can get in touch with us in different ways:

  • Pupils can talk to their School Council when you see them around school.
  • Pupils can put a suggestion to their class representative who can share it at the next meeting.
  • Pupils can ask questions when their School Council gives feedback to the class from a recent meeting.
  • Governors, Staff and Parents/Carers can contact Mrs Gornall (PSHE lead) via the School Office.
