School Council

At Burpham we greatly value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council acts as a vehicle for delivering pupil voice which is used to impact decisions made in the running of the school. At the beginning of the Autumn term, prospective candidates complete a written application form to be considered for the role of school councillor for each class. They present their case to their peers and elections then take place  with ballot slips and a polling station. The winning candidate is elected for the whole of the academic year. School Council meetings are held regularly in the staff room with Miss Booth and there is a notice board opposite the hall door with pictures of all the school councillors and information about the projects they are working on.

School Council Projects


 This term, School Council have carried out a survey of packed lunches. We want to make sure that healthy eating is a priority in our school. We have noticed that lots of children bring in salty and sweet snacks alongside their healthy lunch options. We have asked our classmates if they have any ideas about how we can share the message of healthy eating. If you have any ideas, please add them to your class suggestion box.
