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 regular School Council Meetings. The members of the school council are elected by a class vote; these children then represent their class and bring forward suggestions from their other classmates. The School Council meet with Mrs Smith once a fortnight at lunch time and may have additional meetings when required.

What does the School Council do:

  • Listen to the views and concerns of other pupils.
  • Raise views and concerns at the School Council meeting.
  • Discuss ideas to help improve the school community.
  • Make 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.
  • Organise 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 which can be found in the main reception area.  We are also recycling crisp packets. 


Term 6 - The whole school have designed posters to show the correct way to use the bins in school so that waste is managed appropriately.  The school council have chosen the winning posters which will be displayed around school.




The winning poster was designed by Joseph Crichton - Well done Joseph!Enter text...
