School Council


Welcome to Plaistow Hill's School Council page. We are excited to share with you the children's 'voice' of our school. We hope you enjoy meeting our School Council members and seeing how they work together to share the views and good ideas of everyone to make our school an even better place to be.


Our Members

We are pleased to announce our new School Council members for 2019-20.


Our Elections

The School Council helps children to understand the democratic process by giving everyone an opportunity to share their views and to take part in a vote to help make decisions. Our elections are help twice a year. Each class will have to vote for two representatives - 1 girl and 1 boy with the successful candidates being declared in our school assembly.


Our Meetings

The School Council meet regularly and are involved in making decisions about all aspects of school life. They achieve this through:

1. Consulting with children in their classes, listening to their views and concerns and sharing these during meetings

2. Consulting with adults e.g. the Headteacher and sharing their collective ideas to help make decisions with Mrs Edmonds

3. Reporting to all members of school

The School Council is also responsible for organising and running events to raise money for charities, representing their classes in assemblies and outside events.


Our Actions (for last year)

  • Designing, creating and presenting activities to raise money for charities; guess the number of sweets in the jar
