School Council

Wheelock Primary School Council is made up of pupil representatives from class. The children are chosen by their peers through a democratic vote. As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development of the school. Regular class council meetings give children the opportunity to raise any suggestions or concerns with their school council representative, who then brings the ideas to the school council meetings. The school council meet once a fortnight (or more often if they have a project on the go) with Mrs Byrne. During the meetings the children discuss any issues or suggestions brought from their class councils and also plan regular whole-school events and projects.

Last year, the council organised and judged a number of house competitions and planned fundraising events for charity. During a recent school safeguarding review, members of the school council met with our visitors and were able to talk very confidently and clearly about all the things we do in school to keep the children safe.

This year's school council are:


Woodpeckers: Sam 

Robins:  Luke

Owls:   Jemima

Kingfishers:   Charlie   

Sandpipers:  Jacob

Swans:   Dylan

Eagles:   Sienna

Kestrels:   Izzy

Hawks:   Emily            


Our outdoor area continue to be developed....


With support from the FOWs, alongside the all-weather path around the edge of the field, we have now got a fantastic climbing frame, an outdoor theatre and a climbing wall which the children can access all year round!





The FOWs are continuing to raise money to develop the areas around the path.  We hope to continue to develop the learning and adventure resources along the path in the coming year.



Spring Loose Change Challenge: 

During autumn term, school council conducted a survey with the pupils at Wheelock Primary to find out their three favourite charities.  They found that the children would like to raise money for Make a Wish Foundation, Clic Sergeant and The Guide Dogs Association.  During the second half of spring term, we will be taking part in the 'Loose Change Challenge'.


During this challenge, pupils are being asked to bring in small amounts of loose change to donate (1ps, 2ps, 5ps, 10ps, 20ps and 50ps).  The children will place their money in the tube labelled with the charity of their choice.  School Council will count the tubes regularly and update the children with our progress during praise assemblies. This challenge will last throughout the half term, with a final total being announced on Friday 5th April.
