Hepworth School Council

At Hepworth our pupils have an important role to play in issues that affect the children themselves. We value the opinions and suggestions made by pupils and encourage them to be responsible members of our school community.

Two representatives from each year group are elected by their peers every year. This year Nicole and Seth will act as Chairperson and Secretary during meetings and work with Mrs Huntlea to put an agenda together. The School Council discusses this information each month. The children are always keen to meet at lunchtimes to sort and discuss issues raised by the pupils.

Our School Council are keen to raise money for the school and for charities.

Our School Governor Mrs Blacka joins us for our half termly meetings.

Here are some important things we have been doing -

Dads of Hepworth School donated £270 and the children ordered new playground equipment and sorted storage boxes and a rota for using the new games.

The children have organised fund raising for a variety of charities:

Sport Relief 18 March 2016 when they organised a three legged race.

The British Heart Foundation - 22 May 2016 Jump Rope for Heart Skipping Day.

We all dressed in PJ's on 18 Nov 2016 to raise money for Children in Need.

Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children on 16th Dec 2016.

The school councillors are keen to let KS1 and KS2 know that they are available if anyone needs help or just needs a buddy at playtimes. Don’t hesitate to approach them as they are a lovely group of representatives. You can tell who they are by their photographs in the hall.

Last Year the School Council visited Huddersfield Town Hall to see how democracy works in practice and The Major came in to talk to the school.

Tom in year 1 says:

It would be great if we were a really healthy school. We need to think about what we eat for our snacks and lunches and make sure they do not have too much salt and sugar.

Isabella in Year 1 says:

We should think about different ways that we could raise money for school such as having more dressing up days.

Darcie in Year 2 says:

I think it is important to help other people and also raise money for some new school equipment

Ben in Year 2 says:

I think that we should try to be kind and helpful to everyone and make sure our school is a bully free zone

Phoebe in Year 3 says:

We need to think about raising money so we can have some new books in our fresh new library.  It would be good if we could have some of the latest books which have just been released

Matthew in Year 3 says:

It would be great if we could have lots of fun days and dressing up days to raise money for different charities

Ruby in Year 4 says:

I think being on the school council is good because we discuss lots of things such as ways to improve school and the grounds and also ways to help charities.

James in Year 4 says:

I think it is important to raise money to help keep our school in good order which helps to keep us safe.  Having money to replace or repair equipment is a good idea.

Florence in Year 5 says:

I have lots of ideas – we should try to be kind and help people and make sure our school is a bully free zone.

Patrick in Year 5 says:

I think it would be good for the Class 4 children to have more responsibility in school.  One idea would be for us to be Digital Leaders or D.Leaders for short. We would have to be good at technical things so that we could help and support everyone in school
