School Council

What is a School Council?


A School Council is a group of pupils who have been elected to represent the views of all pupils in school.  Northfield Primary School Council consists of pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. We meet every two weeks to discuss and plan upcoming events and share ideas on how to make our school the best it can be. We are the pupil voice and try our best to share the views of other pupils in school.


Our vision is:

“To make our school the best it can be”

The school runs an active School Council. Members are elected democratically and represent the voice of the children. The School Council holds regular meetings and works hard to improve the school environment. It is also responsible for some fund raising activities, such as Children in Need and Red Nose Day.  Children are actively encouraged to take responsibility for organizing school events. Playground Buddies are organised by the School Council and support positive pupil behaviour. Our Learning Mentors are responsible for coordinating the School Council.
