School Council

Welcome to the School Council page!

The School Council consists of 2 representatives from each year group at Kneesall C of E Primary School. Each year, children who wish to be a School Council representative put themselves forward and explain to their class why they are interested. The children then vote for who they wish to represent them. 

The School Council meet with Mrs Wass regularly throughout each half term. The Chair and Vice Chair of the School Council are responsible for setting the agenda, running the meeting and keeping the minutes. 


2022-23 School Council Representatives:

Chair - Eliza

Vice Chair - Myles


Topics discussed can be very varied – it may be something the Headteacher has raised, a fundraising idea or issues and ideas brought to the meeting by the representatives following discussion in class.
