A council is a group of people that meet regularly. They are elected representatives of a group, who come together to consult, deliberate, or make decisions.
Shoreditch Park Primary School Council members help to represent children’s voices. They are a team of committed students who wish to help improve the school, they pride themselves on creating positive change. SPPS School council meets every half term, at least, addressing issues that have been raised for children. They also work hard to involve our local community, charities and other schools within the Shoreditch Park Primary Community.
Article 12 (respect for the views of the child): Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously. This right applies at all times, for example during immigration proceedings, housing decisions or the child’s day-to-day home life.
SPP School Council is made up of two representatives from each class, one boy and one girl, from year 2-6. Representatives are elected by the children in each class. Children are a Class Representative for one academic year.

- Collect away equipment- Please do not ask other children to put things away.
- Help take children to first aiders.
- Help adults to referee games and make them fair.
- Support children who are feeling lonely in the playground
- Support the younger children in the school
