School Council


Welcome to our School Council


What is the School Council?


A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views considered in decisions that impact upon them. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) -Respect for views of the child.

At Studley Infants School, our school council is a group of children that represent the views of all our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.

We value the opinions of our pupils, and our school council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with our school council teacher representative, Headteacher and other members of staff.

Nicola Jager- School Council (Teacher representative)


I am immensely proud to lead our School Council. We have amazing children in our school who have lots of great ideas on how we can work together to make a better school. They do all the hard work and like to get involved as much as possible…making my job a bit easier!

At Studley Infants we provide children with opportunities throughout our curriculum to encourage perseverance, curiosity, collaboration, and creativity. The school council provides a voice to ensure these strong values in all areas of school life.

We want to make sure that all children’s voices are heard in our school. We meet regularly to discuss ideas and events. I am fortunate to work with an excellent group of children and I know we are going to achieve a lot for our school!


School council aims:

  • To be inclusive by listening to the ideas on how to improve the school from groups of children.
  • To organise whole school and class events
  • To make sure our school is a happy and safe place for all our children
  • To make sure children have a place to voice their concerns, opinions, and thoughts
  • To ensure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.


What have we been doing
