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 School Council will be organised slightly differently this year due to COVID 19 restrictions and therefore the School Council and Travel Ambassadors in each class will be working very closely together to support one another. Instead of meeting as a school group the children will meet with Vanessa Rattley in Year group bubbles.


The School Council have their own display board which they help to keep up-to date.


The School Council and Travel Ambassadors will be working on the following subjects:

  • School Council Reward Shop for improved basic skills and presentation of work
  • Monitoring lunchtime activities and rewarding healthy food options and dining etiquette
  • Ensuring the class Travel Tracker is accessed and updated daily
  • To Monitor the staff Travel Tracker data
