School Council

What is the School Council?

A school council provides a way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account.


At The Pinders Primary School, our school council is a group of children that represents the views of all our pupils. It gives our children the opportunity to have their voices heard and be part of the whole school community. They help to makes decisions about school life and organise projects that support learning and development, such as organising charity events, theme days or representing the school at outside events.

We value the opinions of our pupils and our school council gives pupils a forum to share these opinions with members of staff.


Who are the School Council representatives?

A new school council is elected each year and is made up of 2 representatives from each class from Year 1 to Year 6. All school council representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of each academic year.


Miss Coleman- School Council 

I am very proud to lead our School Council. We have amazing children in our school who have lots of great ideas on how we can work together to make a better school and ways in which we can help others and make a positive impact on our community. The pupils do all the hard work and come up with the fantastic ideas, I help to facilitate and organise. 

We meet regularly to discuss ideas and events. I am very fortunate to work with a great group of children this year and I know we are going to achieve a lot for our school!

What have we been doing?


This year, Pinders Primary School Council have decided to focus our fundraising efforts to help raise money for one charity. As a school, we have chosen to support the My Hospitals Charity this supports the hospitals in Dewsbury, Wakefield and Pontefract. Our school councillors have been meeting regularly and have lots of great fundraising ideas for the upcoming year. We look forward to sharing them with you and hope that you join the fun and help to support the My Hospitals Charity this year.  



We have been meeting with Louise from My Hospitals Charity to discuss our fundraising events.
