Firs Primary School

Inspire, believe, achieve!

School Council

We recognise the importance of children’s voice and we use our school council to involve our children in the decision making process. Each class elects a representative in a formal election that takes place during the first weeks of the academic year. All children are able to stand for election and are allowed to vote. The prospective school council representatives can prepare a persuasive presentation or speech to convince their classmates of their suitability for the role. 

Here is an example of how our year 3 pupils voted for their school council representative. 

Mrs Griffiths works with these children to help drive the school forward, promoting British Values and children’s rights. Our school council meets on a regular basis with our teachers and leadership team to help make decisions about projects and events that help to improve the school and wider community for everyone.

We have been working hard on a new initiative as School Council.  We have shared what we get up to during our meetings with the rest of the school by planning and recording podcasts. Take a look at our most recent podcasts below!

Eco- Schools Project 2024

 

The School Council are excited to introduce their new project!

 

From February 2024-July 2024, we will be working collaboratively with pupils and the local community on a youth-led, environmental action program. Children will be making their own decisions to try and achieve the Eco-Schools Green Flag award. 

 

At Firs, we strive we already prioritise looking after our environment but we would like to try and extend our hard work and knowledge to the local community. 

 

We look forward to sharing our ideas and success with you.

School Council 2021 - 22

 

School Council enjoyed a busy year in 21-22. Alongside our half termly meetings, we visited St Mary's Primary School in Sale to gather inspiration for our active playtimes initiative, we had a sneak peek of our school expansion with a visit to the Conlon site offices and we participated in the Sale West Climate Crisis Conference. This final event gave us the opportunity to share the challenges associated with our recent school expansion work and our plans for the school's future.
