Pupil Voice

Horsenden Primary School’s student council is formed by a representative from every class from Year 3 to Year 6.

At each meeting, we have two chair students and a minute keeper from varying year groups, who assists in running the meetings.

To represent their class, student councillors must nominate themselves and are then voted in by their class members.

We meet regularly to discuss issues that face our Horsenden students on a daily basis. We also discuss and implement changes and events in the school. We also feedback on important parts of school life such as; activities we would like to see more of or introduced, equipment and resources needed,  attendance, school meals and all school events such as assemblies.

Any child in the school that would like an issue raised at a meeting can approach their class representative and they’ll open a discussion on behalf of that person at the next meeting. Representatives also have regular contact with different staff members including our Headteacher.

Our School Council help to make important decisions about the school, such as:

  • Launching competitions to design road safety posters.  
  • Helping to improve school dinners with a focus on health and well-being.
  • Launching a fitness programme that all students are required to part-take after each break time.
  • What we’ll be doing for these rest of this school year:
  • Continuing to work with the Head teacher on developing student resilience
  • Training new school council members
  • Running more competitions
  • Organising charity events

Developing pupil health and well-being around the school
