School Council

School Council - 2023 to 2024 


We have had a School Council for many years now. We began the process of elections with an assembly to outline the what makes a good school councillor which was delivered to the children in KS1 and KS2 on Monday 11th September 2023 


Each year the children from year 1 to year 6 are asked to complete a nomination form which will outline what skills they have to become a school councillor. Nomination forms were completed and each child read their nominations to their class. 


Elections are held every year, to elect two representatives from each class in Y1 to Y6. Elections were held this year on Thursday 21st September. 


The children in KS1 and KS2 will meet in groups to discuss the Big Questions. These will reflect the questions, issues and concerns raised in class. When elected the children will be given a School Council leaflet. This will let them know the dates of the meeting, time and location. 


Class representatives, supported by their class teachers when necessary, lead Class Council meetings where they share information and ask for suggestions and ideas to make sure all children are given the opportunity to have their views listened to.


 Our overall aims are to:

·         Involve all pupils in decision making in order to give Every child, Every chance, Every day to ensure Templars is a successful school.

·         To give all pupils an insight into how organisations, cities and countries are run by modelling and enabling them to participate in a democratic process.

We have had our first school council meeting and been given the first

BIG QUESTION to discuss in our class assemblies. 


Week Beginning 17th October 2023

Now we have changed the cloakrooms and the toilets to make everyone feel safer in school. Where do you feel safe or unsafe in school?  

Week beginning 13th November 2023.

Our second big question is to ask our classes all about the clubs we have at Templars and what the children would like in the future. 


The children spoke about their best club they went to and why? These are some of the responses from the children: 

I liked the sports club, Miss Burden as the teacher was really nice and you do a variety of sports. 

I enjoyed TTRS with Miss Hewett and I like going on TTRS at school. 

I liked PE because it was with Mr Brightside.

Week beginning 22nd November 2023. Our next big question to discuss in our class assemblies. 


At Templars for many years, at the end of the year, we have had a Christmas dinner which has been roast turkey or vegetarian and halal option and all the trimmings with a choice of puddings.

The ladies in the school kitchen would like to ask you a question about this year’s Christmas dinner.


Look out for the results to see what our Christmas dinner will be this year. 



The results are in. The majority of the children across the Key Stages at Templars want the Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and a choice of deserts. We can't wait to see who will serve the dinners this year in the kitchen.
