Colindale Primary School Council Mission Statement

The purpose of our school council is to encourage pupils to get involved in school issues that directly concern them. Our school council members listen to the views of their classmates and take responsibility for some parts of school life.  

As we are a large school, and we want to ensure that everyone has their voice heard during meetings, we have an upper (years 4 to 6) and a lower (years 1 to 3) school council.  There are two members of the council (one boy and one girl) from each class and pupils are encouraged to participate and discuss issues that concern the different age groups. The school council meets regularly with the deputy head.

This year our School Council members are:

The school council helps to improve our school community by nurturing responsibility and a strong sense of pride and togetherness.

Have a look at what the School Council has been doing:

  • Deciding on which playground equipment the Parent Staff Association (PSA) will purchase; so that there are even more fun activities to do at lunchtimes.
  • Meeting with our school governors
  • Year 6 councilors organising events to raise money for their year book (selling ice-lollies, table top sales, bake sale, so far this year)
  • Helping to keep our school clean by removing litter at lunchtimes and reminding pupils and parents to put their rubbish in the bins provided
  • Making posters and speaking to their classmates about Anti-Bullying Week and requesting that the PSA organise a Friendship Disco to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week, which has become a very popular annual event
  • Choosing a treehouse for the playground, which will be purchased by the PSA
  • Choosing what the PSA could fundraise for in the future and suggesting fundraising ideas, like a film night (which will take place in the spring term)
