School Council

At Wheatfield Primary School, children are at the heart of our school community.

As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development and daily life of the school.

The School Council is made up of school ambassadors from Year 1 to Year 6. In April, our youngest children in Reception will also have chance to join the council. 

What will be expected of the school council representative?

  • They will be responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council so that all children in our school can have their say.

  • They will bring new ideas forward as to how we can improve our school and local environment.

  • They will sometimes come to the meetings with fund raising ideas for the school and for other local or national charities. Currently they are supporting UNICEF.

  • They will identify the priorities and lead the initiative to enhance what we do as a school.

We want to make sure that our school is:

  • a safe and happy place for children

  • a place where children can voice their concerns

  • a place where we encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements

  • a place where suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
