At Elvetham Heath Primary, our school council is an opportunity for the children to have a voice, share their opinions and make a difference.
We hold school council elections twice a year, allowing 12 children per year group throughout the year to represent their cohort. Through assemblies and class discussions, the children are taught about the British Value of democracy. Children choose to stand as a school council candidate and present the reasons why they feel people should vote for them to their class. A polling card is created and children then vote for the two people. Children are reminded of the qualities to look for and the responsibilities that school councillors should undertake. The children always take the voting process very seriously, demonstrating our school’s key virtues well.
Current school councillors are:
|Head Boy & Girl Harry and Isobel
|Deputy Head Boy & Girl James and Jenna
|Year 1||Vasco and Noah||Bruno and Layla||Lois and Isla|
|Year 2||Oscar and Matilda||James and Jake||Harry and Niamh|
|Year 3||Imogen and Luka||Rory and Emilia||Evie and Zoe|
|Year 4||Jasmine and Rebecca||Alice and Harry||Nya and Abigail|
|Year 5||Amelia and Megan||Abigail and Sateja||Mollie and Ariya|
|Year 6||Daniel and Akshega||Millie and Evan||Chloe and Sydney|
Our first school council project is to research national and international charities. This will then create a class meeting where all children in school will vote for the charities they wish to support this year. Watch this space to find out what the children choose!
