HCA School Council


At HCA School, pupil voice is integral to the decision making of many aspects of school life. The School Council acts like a mini-democracy - voting on important issues. The School Council is run by the children who have been voted as Class Councillors.  They have meetings to help the school become a better place to learn. 

Our Council has a Chair and Vice chair, Secretary, Treasurer and four class representatives from Year 2 - Year 6. Those children have to be voted for in a similar way to a General Election. They prepare a speech which they present to their class teacher, then the school votes for them to represent their interests at the full School Council meetings. 

When you are a Class Councillor, you have to wear a special badge so that people know what your role is and so they can ask you to take ideas to the next meeting. 

This year the School Council has created an action plan which outlines their key actions. They also use the school development plan to support their work in school. This includes a building, teaching and learning and eco target. 

This year our mains actions are:

  • To fundraise to buy more laptops for Key Stage 2 (teaching and learning)

  • To design a new muriel for the key stage 2 wall and design something to go in place of the chalk board in the infant playground (buildings)

  • To improve the school garden alongside the Eco Group (eco).
