School Council




What is the School Council?


The School Council is a group of children elected by their classmates who represent their views and make a positive contribution towards school life.  Our representatives meet regularly to discuss issues about school and any matters their class would like to raise; They plan and carry out fundraising activities and events and then present back to their own classes the outcomes of these and any updates on school business. 


What qualities does a School Council Representative need?

Pupils at St Michaels Primary School went to the Polling Station on Friday 8th September to elect their representative. Pupils put themselves forward for election and made a presentation to their peers on why they should be elected, based on their qualities and their pledges.
