Marland Hill Community Primary School

Together we will achieve more!

School Council

School Council

Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:

  • Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities.
  • Prepare them to play an active role as citizens.
  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.
  • To have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others.



Our School Council work will enable pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence.   Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.


Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:

  • A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them.
  • A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills.
  • An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school.
  • An opportunity to experience a democratic process.


Our School Council should encourage pupils to develop:

  • A sense of ownership over policy and practice.
  • A consensus over school issues such as behaviour.
  • A responsibility towards the school community and environment.



Class elections will be held every year so that different representatives can put forward their election speeches as well as developing the full potential of the School Council to complete tasks. Two candidates will be elected from each class in years 4, 5 and 6 - one male and one female representative.
