School Council

Here at Westminster Community Primary School, we believe it is very important for ALL children to have a voice and feel as though their views and opinions count.

In the Autumn Term, each class from Reception to Year 6 holds an election to find their class representative.

Each councillor has to ensure that the views of all of the children in their class are heard. They work hard to find ways of collecting the ideas and suggestions of the rest of the school by having:

  • class votes
  • a notebook to record the views of others
  • suggestion boxes
  • posters
  • questionnaires
  • meetings 

Our school council is led by Mrs Spain and Mrs Phillips. Meetings take place once a month to talk about any issues that have been raised by the children in each class.

If you have any ideas about how we can make Westminster Community Primary School a better place, then speak to your class councillor today!

Rotary Shoe Box Appeal.

A discussion was held around the above appeal, all the school council members believe this to be a very worthwhile cause and are happy to help to facilitate this. Charley has asked if we could possible make up an extra box to be sent to our partner school in Uganda - this will be discussed at the next meeting when KS has made enquiries. Jake asked if he could take a box home to fill as a family as he had taken part in this last year. It was agreed if an adult from home spoke to KS before a decision was confirmed, several members have shown an interest in this. The council will share this in assembly after half term and speak with Governors and staff to ask for their help with the donating towards a box. Charley and Amber will help put together a list of items to be donated and speak to Miss Hughes for her help putting this on the newsletter after half term.
