School Council


West Hill School Council


What Is School Council?

A school council is group of pupils who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.


What Do We Do?

A school council does a number of things:

  • The school council meets – with a teacher present – to discuss ways to improve our school. These may include discussing the school improvement plan, lessons, school values, school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning events.

Each class elects one school councillor who represents their peers for a year. The children elected to the school council have to take on various roles. They meet regularly with the Assistant Head Teacher responsible for Pupil Voice (Miss Wiltshire) and discuss issues that affect the school.


Our Charities


After voting for different charities and discussing how they help people, School Council have decided to help support:



Shoe Boxes for Battersea Cats and Dogs Home

The School Council would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all our children and families for helping us support Battersea Cats and Dogs home. We have been totally overwhelmed with your support and have a total of 119 boxes! The effort that you all went to was outstanding and has blown us away.
