School Council

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the headteacher and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in your school.

Pupils are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events, talking to the classes about key issues and working with headteacher to address any areas for improvement following the Pupil Questionnaire.


School councils are usually elected annually by the other children. 


Our School Council Members for 2023-24 are:

Freddie Millyard (Star Class), Lenny Maker (Galaxy Class), Rowan Dodd (Year 2), Primrose Welham (Year 3), Isabella Gale (Year 4) Noah Duffield (Year 5) and George Rawlings (Year 6)


In 2022-23, the school council organised a Dancethon which raised over £5000 for Cancer Charities as well as helping the headteacher organise celebrations for  the King's Coronation. The children also worked hard to identify events/experiences which they felt all pupils at Norton should experince.
