School Council

Egerton School Council

The school council at Egerton CE Primary School is made up of two representatives from each year group from Year 1 through to Year 6, and is led by Mrs Mobbs, Deputy Headteacher.  It provides children with the opportunity to voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. As well as making improvements to the school, the school council finds ways to support our local community and beyond. Each school council member is invited to contribute to meetings and discuss thoughts and ideas from their year group.

School Council 2022-2023

The school council selected the four charities that the school would support through the year:





The school council shared information about the charities in class and during worship. 

We are proud to have raised over £600 for Hypo Hounds, MIND and Porchlight, and collected over 200 tins for The Salvation Army.


The school council met with Mrs Morrissey at various points during the year to discuss what her job as the SENCO entails and learn more about ADHD, autism and cerebral palsy. To support those in our community with ADHD, autism and cerebral palsy, awareness days were held at school led by the school councillors. The school council shared this knowledge with their class by delivering an engaging and informative PowerPoint presentations. The Year 5 school councillors also supported the Year 1 school councillors to answer any questions the children had in class and Year 6 led a presentation for the Year R children. The school councillors chose tasks and activities for the children to undertake during our awareness days and selected books for teachers to read to their class.


The school council members received specialised training about Egerton CE Primary School becoming a Rights Respecting School. Children learnt what rights are and why children have more rights than adults. School councillors worked together to identify where rights are being met in the local community and thought about ways to improve our understanding about rights. The school councillors shared this information in class and led Article Assemblies about the rights.


School Council 2021-2022

The school council selected the four charities that the school would support through the year:





The House Captains worked with the school council members to organise charity day events. Children enjoyed the fun themed days and taking part in a range of different activities in order to raise money, which included a basketball hoop challenge, a cat themed day, a cake sale and even a break the rules day to name but a few.

We are proud to have raised £3,057 to support these charities.


The school council discussed how the playground was used and debated changes to improve it. Over several weeks and discussions with their classes, council members selected new playground markings for playground games as well as for learning. The new markings were added to the playground over the summer holidays.
