Pupil Council

Welcome to Heaton St.Barnabas School council page

Check this page for regular updates about our meetings.

What is the School Council?

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Heaton St.Barnabas CE Primary. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to people outside of the school.

Who are the School Councillors?

Every year we run an election campaign to vote for new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.


We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.

Agenda – a list of things to talk about
Councillor – someone who has been voted for to work for their class mates on the school council
Minutes – the notes taken during a meeting so people can see what goes on
Motion – an idea for the council to discuss

Tasting session for our new school menu

During one of our pupil council meetings, we met to taste new options for the school lunch menu. We gave our opinions to the kitchen staff and thoroughly enjoyed tasting the food.
