A new school council is elected by their peers at the beginning of each academic year. Our school council is made up of 2 representatives from each year group from Y2 to Y6. This creates a central group that speaks on behalf of the whole school and makes decisions about school life. We value the opinions of our pupils and the School Council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with the Headteacher and other members of staff.
Here at St Mary and St Michael’s our school council members are elected by their peers to represent the views and opinions of the pupils in our school.

Miss Donaghy – School Council Teacher Representative
‘I am very 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! We have children from Year 6 all the way down to Year 2. We want to make sure that all children’s voices are heard in our school. Each class has a school council box which gives all pupils in our school the opportunity to voice their opinions and share their ideas. We meet every other Wednesday to discuss the ideas from our class boxes and events we are running. Then each class representative feeds information back to their classes. I am very fortunate to work with a great group of children this year and I know we are going to achieve a lot for our school.’

In the 2022/23 school year the school council aim to do the following:

- Plan our anti-bullying week activities and assembly.
- Plan and run in school competitions and judge the entries.
- Create a fundraising plan for the year and choose charities we would like to work with.
