At Padiham Primary, our school councillors have been elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions and think about new ideas to ensure the school stays a happy, safe and exciting environment for everyone.
Each class from Year 2-6 has elected a councillor who will meet with myself regularly to discuss ways in which we can improve our school. The meetings allow the children to suggest ideas, communicate with their peers and have a voice in school matters.
It is the councillor’s jobs to:
- Attend meetings regularly
- Listen to all school council members and their opinions
- Talk to their classes and pass their views on to the school council
- Feedback from school council meetings to their peers
- Make suggestions for change and share ideas with the school council
- Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
This year we are going to try to come up with ideas for all areas of the school – in classrooms, inside general school areas, in our school grounds and even in the community.
We have a School Council display board in the corridor with a ‘suggestions’ area so that children can write any ideas they may have and our councillors will collect them ready to be discussed at our next meeting.

Thank you for your donations!
Well done for your amazing 'hero' costumes - we had such a variety of different outfits and you all put in so much effort! We had people who help us, superheroes and some of you dressed as members of your family who you look up to!
These are just some of the things we did...
- You asked for a Trim Trail rota - we made one!
- We decided the new House names for the school - Gawthorpe Panthers, Pendle Leopards, Towneley Lions and Greenway Tigers
- We organised Children in Need and Comic relief and raised hundreds of pounds for charity.
