School Council

At Aston Hall J&I, we are dedicated to making sure our students feel heard and that they know their opinion matters! During 2022/23 our School Council will work together and liaise with their classmates to ensure that every child’s opinion counts.

What is the School Council?

The School Council is a group of pupils from year 1 to 6 who were voted by their peers in class to represent them and their views to improve our school.

Their aim is to help organise and discuss how the school is run, while looking into projects which can help children’s learning and development.

The School Council meets at least half termly to discuss topics and issues within the school.

Why do we have a School Council?

  • To ensure our school is run effectively, with the children’s opinions at the heart of every decision
  • To help raise funds and make important decisions
  • To meet with stakeholders and discuss their ideas

What has the School Council done so far this year?

  • Formed a new Council and elected two presidents from each Key Stage to represent our school at Trust Council Meetings
  • Helped to organise and plan The Santa Dash
  • Helped with the organisation and fundraising of the Christmas Fayre
  • Planned and discussed this year’s World Book Day theme

What happens in the meetings?

We begin each meeting by completing a review and catching up on current topics for debates in school. The Council often plans and prepares resources, such as posters and leaflets to advertise upcoming school events.

We communicate between different year group councillors to ensure every class is heard in our school.

Wickersley Partnership Trust Student Council

Wickersley Partnership Trust recognises the importance of listening and responding to ‘student voice’ to help shape improvements to the school.

Each Trust school has a representative group of students (School Councillors), elected by their peers, who form the ‘School Council’. They play an active role in school – organising events, raising issues and representing the views of their peers with Senior Leaders in the school.

Each School Councillor runs an ‘election campaign’ annually and their classmates vote for their new class representatives – this is democracy in action!

Wickersley Partnership Trust believes School Councils develop its core values including cooperation, mutual respect and a commitment to diversity and equality.

Wickersley Partnership Trust has a ‘Trust Council’ which has elected representatives from each of the school-based Councils, likewise, they help shape improvements to the Trust.

The Trust Council meets once every half term at rotating venues across the Trust. During these meetings, the students discuss Trust priorities – what’s going well already, and what we could do better in our schools and School Councils.

Charity fundraising is a key aspect of the Trust Council too – the Representatives come up with joint ideas on how we – as a Trust – can ramp up our charitable efforts.

At the end of each meeting, the Trust Council sets an agenda for the School Councils and how they’re going to move forward with their fantastic new ideas.

All minutes from the meetings will be shared with the Student Body by Trust Council Representatives and on Wickersley Partnership Trust’s website.

The Junior and Senior Trust Councils will also meet once a year at a leadership summit.
