School Council

What is a School Council?

A school council is a group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all children to improve their school. Each year voting takes place for the children who have been campaigning to be elected to the School Council.

 What do we do?

  • A school council meets to discuss and sort out problems and ideas.  These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning charity events and putting forward views of other children in the school!

What makes a good School Councillor?

Being a school councillor is a very responsible position as you have to have a lot of sensible ideas and sometimes have to do things in your lunch times. However, it is your chance to play an important part in our Bradfield Dungworth community. You may feel a little nervous about putting yourself up for election but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas so be brave!


We have agreed that our vision for 2023-24 is to revamp the Arty Nest and create the Great Dungworth Flower Show! Here is the before picture. Come back in Summer for the after picture!

School Council Successes


This year we are focusing on achieving the Bronze Eco School Award. We have started by making sure we turn off the lights and the computer projector when we leave the classroom.

We decided we wanted to support a local charity this year following a suggestion from a parent in our parent questionnaire. We researched local charities and then presented these in an assembly. Then we had a vote to choose which one we wanted to support. Eva made a great powerpoint to tell us about the charities.

The winner is ...
