School Council

North Walkden Primary School

News Update



Our North Walkden School Council consists of eight children, two representatives from each class from year three to six. Children nominate themselves for the role and are asked to produce a short speech outlining why they would like to be a class representative and what they can bring to the role. Classes then take part in a concealed vote to elect their two representatives fairly.  Next year we also plan to vote for the role of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.


During the course of the year, our School Council have dedicated a lot of their own time and effort to meet together and have worked on many initiatives. Last year School Council helped to run an Anti-Bullying Week by providing a presentation for the school, which included an Anti-Bullying competition. They have also promoted healthy eating events; supported in organising and hosting ‘North Walkden Has Talent’ as well as conducting health and safety checks around the school and taking part in many surveys.


In addition to this, our council lead an assembly with Miss Briggs, linked to our SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) topic, as well as informing their peers on the schools councils role within school and ideas for the playground buddies’ scheme. Our successful reading and playtime buddy scheme has gone from strength to strength this year. The key stage one children have loved some of the older children working alongside them and this is something in which we intend to build on next year.


The school council members have played a vital role in supporting school at special events such as the key stage shows, parent workshops, fundraising events, meetings and our recent successful summer fair. We look forward to next years school council vote, so the excellent work can continue. Watch this space!
