Wilthorpe School Council


Academic Year 2023-2024



Welcome to Wilthorpe Primary School Council page


What is the School Council?

The School Council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Wilthorpe Primary School. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. We talk to our peers, teachers, governors, our PSA and the PTA.

Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class (Year 3- Year 6). 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.


When does the School Council Meet?

The School Council meets every fortnight.


Why have a School Council?

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives


Our School Council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.


School Council Code of Conduct

  • Be on time to every school council meeting
  • Let the Chair know if you are unable to make a meeting
  • Respect and listen to each other
  • Put your hand up if you want to speak
  • Make decisions after we have listened to each other
  • Always have the interest of the whole school at heart when making decisions
  • Give all children a voice
  • Have a positive 'can do' attitude



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