School Council

Our School Council 

Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:

  • Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities.
  • Prepare them to play an active role as citizens.
  • Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.
  • To have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others.


We value the benefits of operating a School Council at Chilton as it represents the whole school. Through our School Council we will enable pupils with positive attitudes to have a positive influence with each other and throughout the school.  Everyone therefore will benefit from the work of the School Council


Class elections will be held every year in the Autumn term so that different children can put forward their names to be elected. Each class will then vote for the most suitable candidates to represent their class. Two candidates will then be elected from each class throughout the school from Rec to Year 6.

The role of the School Council is a responsible job, and School Council Members will share information with their class, and get ideas and views from pupils by talking.


The school council meet every fortnight and the class representatives report back to their classes to share ideas.
