School Council

What is the School Council?

The school council aims to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at St. Martin’s C of E VA Primary School. We work together to listen to the voices of all the children at our school and look for ways to make changes for the better. Sometimes we have to speak to teachers, lead meetings and give feedback to the rest of our class. Our role is very important because we represent the thoughts, feelings and ideas of every child in our school.


Who are the School Councillors?

Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.



We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.
