School Council

What is a School Council?

At Knollmead Primary School, our School Council members are a highly valued group of children who represent the voice and opinions of all the children within our school. The school council is an elected group of children who meet regularly and work together to represent the pupils of Knollmead Primary School.

Through our School Council we aim to develop young leadership skills, whilst supporting student democracy. Most importantly, our strong team of Councillors aim to promote the well-being of the children within our inclusive school.

The School's Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.


How long can you be a School Councillor for?

School Councilors are elected to represent their classes for one year.


How the School Council is run

We have an active School Council with a boy and girl representing each year group from Reception to Year 6. Each member was elected by their class at the beginning of the school year after a short discussion explaining why they should be elected. The School Council then follows the principles of a democratic society to make decisions.

The School Council is run and led by the children, supported by a member of staff, and takes an active role in making decisions and suggestions on behalf of the children in the school.

Members of the Council meet monthly, taking part in organising fund raising events, discussing issues related to the curriculum and taking suggestions from their class to the meetings.

Road Safety

It is vital that everyone has good road safety sense at Knollmead Primary School. This is spoken about in whole school assembly and the key messages to all Knollmead children are as follows:

1. First find the safest place to cross the road

Look out for safe crossing spots eg zebra, pelican or toucan crossings as well as islands, subways or crossings controlled by a traffic warden.

Aim to cross at a spot where they can see clearly in all directions and where they can be seen, so not between parked cars.

2. When crossing the road stop just before you get to the kerb

Do not stand too close to the edge of the kerb and take your time looking around for traffic.

3. Look all around for traffic and listen

4. If traffic is coming, let it pass

It's always better to take your time and wait for all traffic to pass.

5. When it is safe, go straight across the road - but do not run

Keep looking and listening as you cross the road

Who to contact if you are worried?

There may be times when you feel worried, anxious or sad about certain events in your life.

Sometimes people can feel sad but they may not know why. Usually, if people feel sad, there is a reason. The good news is that at Knollmead, everyone is here to help you feel happier. You can talk to people at home, your parents, grandparents, friends or relatives. You can discuss things with your friends. If you are worried, you can simply talk to a teacher or a teaching assistant in your class. If you are outside you can talk to the staff on duty. Sometimes people like to talk to the staff in the office. Mr Tan, Mrs Kearns, Ms Salih and Miss Dean are also available to listen and help. Miss Standish also helps children in school who are worried; she can arrange to see you during the day if that helps.

At lunchtime, there are many lunchtime supervisors on duty who will be able to help you.
