Pupil Governors - School Council

2023 - 2024


Congratulations to the 8 children who are now settling into their roles as our new 'Pupil Governors'!


The group had their first meeting with Miss Hindle just before the half-term on 25th October 2023.


  • We talked about the roles and purpose of the school council work in supporting school improvement projects.


  • Each Pupil Governor had the opportunity to share their ideas about the things they would like to see in school and how pupils' views could be sought around some areas of school life. These included sports, roles of the monitors to support the younger children with play outside and future projects which could be worked on together.


  • Pupil views will be regularly collected and the Pupil Governors will share updates and reminders through each term within our whole school assembly time.


  • The group decided jointly that for their first project, they would like to look at improving the playground areas by encouraging everyone to keep things clean and tidy. This included disposing of litter carefully in the bins provided.


  • Following their first meeting, the Pupil Governors are now going to design and make posters which we can display around school to promote a tidy and litter free playground.


Please see the minutes from our October 2023 meeting at the end of this page.


Watch this space for further updates!


The next Pupil Governor meeting will be held on Tuesday 5th December 2023.  

This school year (2023-24), we have extended the pupil involvement for the school council from 'Junior Governors' to 'Pupil Governors.' This will allow the wider collection of the pupil voice, views, opinions  by including representatives from Key Stage 1 as well as in Key Stage 2. 


All children from Year 1 to Year 6 were invited to apply as a 'Pupil Governor' representative for their class. Letters were written to Miss Hindle explaining why the volunteers would like to take on this important role and to share how they thought their contributions could help the group in supporting school improvement initiatives and fund raising ideas.



2022 - 2023

We welcome the ideas and input from our Junior Governors. Their roles involve collecting the wider pupils' voice through their representation in Class 3 and 4.


We aim to:


1. Continue making our school even better for everyone

2. Be responsible citizens

3. Help others in our school and within our local and wider community



We met on Thursday 25th May 2023.


Please see the minutes from our meetings below at the end of this page.


The Junior Governors shared feedback and updates from their last meeting to all pupils during assembly time on 5th June 2023.



What views and improvements do we expect to see soon?


  • New netball and football nets will have been purchased and used well by many children!


  • A collection of pupils' views on their ideas and thoughts for after school activity clubs from September 2023. 


We will continue to provide updates following our future meetings. 


Update 21st September 2023


  • We are delighted to have new netball and football nets up which are in good use!


  • Following pupils' views, the school has arranged a much wider range of after school activity clubs this term which are being enjoyed by many of you! The gymnastics, football, art and craft, netball and sewing clubs have all proved to be VERY popular! Great choices everyone and thanks to all the help from the school staff in delivering these new clubs for us!
