School Council Statement
The school council here at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Crewe consists of extremely active, dedicated and well organised pupils.
The members of our school council take their roles very seriously and, as a result of their hard work and dedication, have orchestrated and coordinated positive changes within our school. Children in our school vote for other children in their class from a range of nominees and vote.
The school council is led by a Chair and Deputy Chair who are chosen by the school council members themselves. We also have a link teacher who helps to facilitate the meetings.
Our school council helps to provide a voice for all pupils and it aims to meet each half term.
Our school council works together as a team to ensure we can be the best school possible by discussing ideas and making decisions.
- We aim to help all pupils feel comfortable, happy and safe at school.
- We work together through trust, co-operation, team work and a positive attitude
- We aim to listen to others, discuss comments and make suggestions that would make our school even better than it is now!
Over the past few years, our school council have helped to improve the school environment and grounds, suggested and run fundraising activities during school time, raised money for charities and acted as hosts when we have visitors. We were also involved in introducing and designing a tie which is now included as part of our uniform!
Some suggestions we made are now becoming a reality as the playgrounds and outdoor play spaces are being improved. We have suggested equipment and zones which could be included.
We have also suggested that Shady Hollow was tidied so we could use it, and a phased programme of work has started this year!

We have many ideas such as fund raising, charity events, competitions and ways to further improve the school over the coming year. We are awaiting further guidance on how we can meet safely together as currently we cannot meet to discuss these ideas in person.
