School Council

A School Council has been established in our School covering all year groups.  Through setting up the School Council, children have opportunities to be actively engaged in discussion and consultation about aspects of school life and develop their sense of responsibility as citizens within a community.


The school council is Valentine Primary School’s Platform for the children’s voices to be heard and listened to.  The School Council Representatives will bring concerns and ideas to meetings which are discussed and actioned upon.  There is a Council representative from each class.  Year 6 representatives have lead roles within the council – Chair, Vice-chair and Secretary.

The children have set ground rules for their meetings and these are followed at all meetings.

  • Always arrive on time
  • Always bring school council folders
  • Always bring a pen/pencil
  • Always wear your School Council Badge
  • Only 1 person to speak at a time and be respectful to others ideas

The Council Secretary takes minutes of the meeting and then the Year 6 Council representatives produce and distribute the minutes to each class.
