At Mayfield Primary School we believe it is important that the children feel part of the school community and that their opinions and ideas are valued. Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through School Council Meetings. The members of school council are elected by a class vote of one boy and one girl; these children then represent their class and bring forward suggestions from their other classmates. School council meet with Mrs Smith once a fortnight at lunch time and may meet additional lunchtimes when required.

What do the school council do:

  • Listens to the views and concerns of other pupils.
  • Raises these views and concerns at the school council meeting.
  • Come up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions.
  • Makes decisions about fundraising ideas for the school and charities.
  • Suggest ways to improve the life of the school and contribute to the local and wider community.
  • Organising whole school events.

This year we have already thought about ways to change the end of play/lunch lining up procedure and our new way is working well.

We have also raised money for ‘Children in Need’ by collecting coins to fill in Pudsey Bear.

Term 5 - We have been thinking of ways to be more environmentally friendly, we have started a battery collection with the tubs in the main reception.  We are also recycling crisp packets which we have in our lunch boxes.  The whole school were also asked to design a poster to show the correct way to use the bins in school so that we all put paper in the correct bin.  We will be judging the posters in term 6 to decide on the winning poster which will be displayed around school.
