St Barnabas

& St Paul's Church of England Primary School

School Council

We, the staff of St Barnabas and St Paul’s Primary School, endorse the Convention on the Rights of the Child and are working towards the implementation of policies and practices which reflect the Convention. Our aim is to develop a culture which respects the views of both adults and children.


By establishing and developing our school council, we believe that we are providing our pupils with the opportunity to exert a contributory influence upon their school experiences. It is our way of creating a context which facilitates equal interaction between staff and children.


“School Councils are democratically elected groups of students who represent their peers and enable pupils to become partners in their own education, making a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos.



Council Meetings

  • Council meetings are held every third week or sooner if required.

  • The meetings are held by the Social Action Leader together with the Council representatives and other members of staff e.g. Headteacher/Senior Leadership Team/Governors (when appropriate).

  • The agenda for meetings will be drawn up by the Council Representatives/Social Action Leader.

  • The Council Representative/Coordinator will take notes about issues/ideas discussed in class and bring them to the next Council meeting.

  • After each Council meeting, the elected Councillor will report back to the class on the issues discussed and the action taken.

Red Nose Day 2022

School Council would like to say a huge thank you to all of our parents and carers that joined us for Red Nose Day on Friday 18th March. It was lovely to see so many of you there supporting our school with your generous donations. We raised £333.33, which is a new record for St Barnabas and St Paul's for RND.
