Holyport School Council

What does our school council do?

The Holyport School Council is a group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with Miss Sharp. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. They take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, supporting school events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Our school council is elected annually by the other children.


Holyport school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets with Miss Sharp to discuss and sort out problems. These could include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed upon, such as carrying out environmental audits of the school, planning events, creating posters, or meeting with subject leader staff.
  • Each year, every class will elect two representatives to be members of the school council. 


Why is our School Council important?

A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) Respect for views of the child.


About Miss Sharp - School Council Teacher Representitive

I am very proud to lead our School Council. We have amazing children in our school who have lots of great ideas on how we can work together to make a better school.  They do all the hard work and like to get involved as much as possible…making my job a bit easier! Our motto at Holyport is 'Love Learning, Love Life' and each member of our school council truly does. We have children from Year 6 all the way down to Year 1. We want to make sure that all children’s voices are heard in our school.  We meet regularly to discuss ideas and events. I am very fortunate to work with a great group of children this year and I know we are going to achieve a lot for our school!
