School Council

Our School Council plays an important part in the school……

At St. Loys, pupil voice is recognised as an integral part of school life, helping to inform the pupil experience. As an elected member of school council, pupils are provided with the opportunity to share their views, take decisions on behalf of others, be advocates of our school values and develop attributes of Global Citizenship. Elections for members usually takes place at the beginning of the school year. Each year group votes for one representative and badges are awarded to the successful candidates. Our most recent elections took place on the 17th September and the following children were elected;

  • Leo Kilsby – Hedgehogs Class
  • Aggie Russell & Fergus Toller – Squirrels Class
  • Jake Walton & Toni Stumpenhusen – Badgers Class

Our school Council meet once a term to discuss any issues in our school, fundraising ideas and to make suggestions for further action.  The elected School Council members, from Foundation Stage (elected from Spring Term) to Year 6, meet with either our Headteacher Miss Crawford or one of our Senior Lead Teachers. After consulting with their respective class peers about issues for discussion, an agenda is set and the meeting is arranged.

Our eldest representatives are encouraged to Chair and Minute the meetings.

In the past our School Council have:

  • Helped design, plan and order new Playground Markings
  • Organised and run cake sales
  • Purchased playground equipment for more active breaks
  • Started a lunch time Lego club
  • Produced and presented a Whole School Talent Show for Comic Relief.
