School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
Oldway Primary School has a School Council made up of pupils from years 1 to 6.  One representative from each class is elected by their peers. Before the elections, children are asked to present to their class why they would make a good school council representative and then an official vote takes place. The School Council representatives then select a Head Boy and Head Girl from Year 6 to represent the school. Pupils have to apply for this position, seek references and even go through a ‘formal’ interview process conducted by their peers.


School Council meets every two - three weeks with Mrs Hartley to discuss their views (and the views of their class peers) on how certain aspects of the school should be run and other current issues. We are currently discussing ways in which to make the children in our school more healthy.
