School Council 2019-20

Our School Council is made up of two pupils from each class in years 2-6 who are democratically elected to represent the views of all pupils and who work together to make Pendle Primary an even better school. 


How do I get elected for the School Council?


Elections are held every year in the autumn term. At School Council election time you will need to prepare a mandate to persuade class member to vote for you, explain why you want to stand and what you plan to do to represent their views and ideas. Share with your class all the reasons why you would make a great School Councillor - perhaps you are full of good ideas, a good listener, maybe you are good at organising events and enthusiastic about making Pendle Primary even better!


After you have shared your ideas with your class, everyone in your class will be asked to vote. the elections for School Council are a good example of democracy: this means everyone in your class had the chance to be involved in deciding who will be the School Councillors, as everyone has a vote. We use a ballot box and votes are counted by our teacher returning officers. Our elections run just like the General Election that decides who is in government for the country.

School Council 2018 / 2019

School council have been busy judging all the fantastic entries to their road safety poster competition! Well done to all those who entered, we have been very impressed with the eye-catching designs! Winners to be announced in Friday's celebration assembly...

Road safety poster competition

School council were concerned with safety on the roads around our school, in particularly with where parents and carers were parking when dropping off and picking up children at the start and end of the school day.

To help tackle this they encouraged everyone in school to take part in the national walk to school week, with the class with the most children walking on th most days winning an extra playtime - well done class 3K!

They planned, practised and delivered an assembly for all the children in the school to raise awareness and improve road safety, giving the children some important safety messages to take home and share with their parents.

Their next step is to continue to raise awareness by holding a road safety poster competition.
