St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School ‘Serve the Lord with Joy’

School Council

Picture 1

We are a committee of pupils representing each year group within the school.


Our belief is that the pupils at our school are the heart of our school community and therefore, we value their thoughts, ideas and opinions. Our School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and used effectively in order to have a positive impact for the whole school and its future developments. Our links with staff, parents, pupils, the governors and community enable us to participate in decisions about teaching, learning, fundraising and the success of our school.


We recently planted new trees in Woodford Park as part of the local 'Communitrees' project.


St Dominic Savio has an active School Council which ensures pupils’ voices are heard in the running of the school. It works as follows:

  • Each class (Years 2 to 6) elects one member to the Council each year.
  • The Council meets regularly and discusses issues raised by pupils.
  • Class representatives report back to their class and help make the ideas they agree on happen.


Examples of ideas that the School Council has made happen include:

  • lunchtime clubs as an alternative for pupils who prefer a quieter playtime
  • rewards for top attendance and punctuality


If you have a good idea for the School, let your School Council representatives know and they can raise it at the next meeting.
