What We Do

There are 12 children on our School Council, one from each class from Year 1 to Year 6.  We collect ideas from our classes and feed back to Mrs Beezer in School Council Meetings.

Together we:

  • are the ‘voice’ of the children in school
  • work together to decide which problems we can help with
  • plan events, such as fundraising for Comic Relief and Children in Need
  • support the teachers with events around school, like the Summer Fair and Christmas Productions.

A School Councillor has to be a role model to other children. We pride ourselves on being well behaved, working hard and representing our school.

Already this year we have:

Last year’s School Councillors were involved in a wide range of decisions and are very proud of what they achieved. Some of the things they did include:

  • Raised over £580 for Children in Need by organising a Cake Sale, “Most stickers on Pudsey” game and non-uniform day.
  • Discussed and agreed with pupils and staff new rules for ‘Tig’.
  • Met with Young Enterprise students from JSTC about developing Alford Primary School wristbands.
  • Raised £360 for Comic Relief with a Talent Show, a “Wear Something Red Day” and sold Red Noses in the office.
  • Chose new playground equipment for lunchtimes – the children really liked the things we chose!
