School Council

Welcome to our School Council webpage.

Unfortunately, as we are currently in bubbles, we have had to postpone our school council meetings and activities for this term. They will resume as soon as we can.


Our School Council last year....
The School Council meet once a fortnight on a Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Barford helps us. We do all sorts of activities during the year, such as arranging fun events to raise money for charities, caring for our school grounds, and discussing ideas that our classmates have for the school. smiley

Well done everyone. We raised £318.65 for Children in Need this year by having a pyjama day and joining in the Big Morning Move with Joe Wicks. Our Pudsey face made from coins was fantastic.

It's good to see our new scooter pod and bike storage is being used so well. A great way to travel to school !

Popcorn sale.

Thank you everyone. You helped the School Council raise £81 to buy new playground toys for next year.

Our lovely new toys!

We are proud to announce that we raised £300.51 for Children In Need, by holding a 'Back To Front Day' this term. Our Pudsey face made from copper coins was a great success. Thank you for all your donations.

News from last year........

Thank you for all your kind donations. This year you helped us to raise £253 for Children in Need during our non-uniform day. Thank you also the the children who helped to make the delicious biscuits for everyone.

Wednesday 27th September is



Wear your sporty clothes to school, take part in some fun fitness activities, and help the School Council raise money for new sports equipment by bringing a donation.

Thank you.

Our Padiham and Hapton Pupil Parliament representatives have been helping with a memorial to the 319 soldiers from Padiham who died during the first world war. An area of Memorial park has been turned into a 'battlefield' with trenches and a destroyed building. It has tank tracks and puddles as it would have had 100 years ago. The Pupil Parliament are working together to design an informative sign for the public to explain what it is. We are hoping it will educate future generations of Padiham school children about The Great War.

Thank you for raising £217 for Comic relief this year! well done everyone.

Thank you to all the children who joined in our matchbox challenge. You helped us raise £82 towards our new playtime toys.

The Great Padiham Cake Off for Children in Need was great fun. We all came dresses in our pyjamas, helping to raise lots of money for this great charity.

Look how smart our playground pals look. We will help you at playtime if you have a worry, or need someone to keep you company. We love our new bright tabbards.

Have a look below to see what the School Council got up to last year.

CLEAN FOR THE QUEEN! We have cleaned up our woods and removed lots of litter, joining in the 'Clean for the Queen' event to celebrate her Majesty's 90th Birthday

On Tuesday 22nd March we hosted the Padiham and Hapton Primary Pupil Parliament meeting. We are currently making plans for a joint celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday in June.

In February we held a competition across school to design a poster encouraging people to pick up their dog's mess. We have had some super entries. We will be picking winners soon. They will then be taken to a grand final at the Pupil Parliament in April. More news soon......


UPDATE>>>> Well done to Holly Martin, Maddison Laraby and Jayden Coates, who were voted the winners of the poster competition by the Padiham and Hapton Pupil Parliament.

On 12th January the school Council visited the Houses of Parliament in London. What an amazing day!

We joined with the other primary schools in Padiham to visit the Houses of Parliament in London. It was a very long day, but really exciting and interesting for our junior School Councillors and our two reporters, who had applied for the job to join the trip. We saw many of the famous London landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, St James Park and the River Thames. We had an hour long tour of Parliament, which was followed by a workshop on democracy. To round off our day we enjoyed tea together before a very long journey home. Well done to all the children involved who were enthusiastic and well behaved all day.smiley

Lauren and Holly are proud members of the new Padiham Pupil Parliament.

The Padiham Pupil Parliament meets each half term. It consists of two Pupil Parliament members from each of the five Padiham primary schools. It is run like a proper council meeting, with an agenda and minutes being taken. Holly and Lauren return to school after each meeting and discuss issues with our school Council. Their ideas are then taken back to the next meeting. So far we have learnt how a council meeting works, with the help of local Councillor Bob Clarke and Madam Mayor. We have campaigned for an addition to the Padiham Pump Track, and have discussed issues such as dog fouling. We had a very interesting session with our local MP Julie Cooper, where we quizzed her about what would be done by the government to help those affected by the Boxing Day flooding in Padiham. We are currently agreeing ideas for how the five schools can join together to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday in April. More news soon........

Children in Need 2015....


Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Children in Need collection this year.

We raised an amazing £230. We all enjoyed a cosy day wearing our pyjamas, and the School Council treated us all to a delicious biscuit.

Caring for our environment......

The Councillors have been out and about litter picking around school. There wasn't much to pick up, so well done everyone for using the bins provided.

Eco news.....

Our Rag Bag collection in September raised £48. Thank you to everyone who contributed by bringing their unwanted textiles to school. Not only have you helped raise money, but you have also prevented clothing going to landfill.frown
