School Council


At South Hill Primary School, we respect and value the fundamental British values of democracy and ensure the views and opinions of our pupils are expressed. At the beginning of September, the children elect two school council members from each class. All pupils are invited to stand as School Council representatives and are voted for fairly and democratically by their peers.

The School Council meets once every half term to discuss issues raised by the children and ideas to help improve our school even further. We believe our School Council are very effective in helping bring about positive changes in the life of our school.

The School Council meets our School Governors

On Tuesday morning the School Council met some of our wonderful School Governors. They talked about how they are elected, taking part in school assemblies where they have met members of our wider community and the improvements they have made to our school this year which have included; how can we make our school a happier place, how can we improve our school environment and how can we make learning in our classrooms more fun. The children then asked the Governors some interesting and posing questions about their role in our school. Finally, three children said why they loved representing their peers in the School Council this year.

I would personally like to thank each and every one of School Council for helping to make this another memorable year of positive change for our brilliant school.
