School Council





At The Grange we have an active School Council.  Pupils from Years 1 and 2 are elected by their peers and serve on the Council for a term. In the Summer term children from Reception are also invited to join our meetings. 

The elected children wear a badge with pride and photographs of the current Council are displayed by the library so that everyone knows who they are.  School Council also write a profile of themselves which is displayed for the rest of the school to read. At the end of their office each child receives a certificate of thanks.


The Council meet once a month.  Meetings follow an agenda and minutes of each meeting are typed up and reported back to classes. The duties of the School Council are to represent the pupil voice, set a good example to others, attend meetings and carry out School Council business. Time and resources are allocated to ensure that the role of the School Council is dynamic and effective.


At The Grange the School Council has achieved many things, here are some of them:


  •     Involvement in planning special days/weeks, such as Feeling Good Week.
  •     Writing playground behaviour rules.
  •     Encouraging healthy eating.
  •     Involvement in achieving our Healthy Schools Award.
  •     Promoting children's rights to an education through Comic Relief  and Children in need 
  •     Helping box up food for Food Banks at Harvest Festival
  •     Show around visitors where needed 
  •     Designing a buddy scheme for the playground.
