School Council

School Council


Our vision is for all children at Kneesall C of E Primary School to be able to have a voice and contribute towards the continuous improvement of our school community.


The School Council is group of pupils elected by their peers in a formal election setting. These pupils represent the views of all the pupils and consider ways to enhance their school. The School Council is made up of representations from each class who discuss matters about their learning and school life and liaise with the Senior Leadership Team and Governors of the school.



The aim of the School Council is to involve pupils in helping to create and implement school policies and procedures that will benefit everyone in the school family. This is achieved through fostering a strong pupil voice, enabling children to play an active role in making their school a better place for all, and through upholding our Christian values: Believe Achieve Flourish.


Believe in yourself, your faith and others  

And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23 


Achieve your goals, your dreams and your future  

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. 2 Chronicles 15:7  


Flourish through your faith, the love and kindness of others, your values and your love of learning 

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.Psalm 92:12  


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