Why is the School Council important at Lakenham Primary School?

  • Having children from Year 1 to Year 6 in the School Council means most year groups are involved and there's more ideas to share.
  • The School Council helps promote positive role models for other children.
  • They help make decisions about what goes on in the school like the fairs, activity days and new people coming to work here.
  • It helps everyone know what is going on in the school because we can tell other people.
  • It means pupil voice, opinions and ideas are heard.
  • It makes sure children have clubs and activities that they like.
  • It gives children an opportunity to share if something isn't going well.
  • School Council helps choose and organise fundraisers for the school to do.

Sir David Amess Children’s Parliament 2022

On Friday 14th October 2022, two of our year 5 School Council members represented our school at the third Children’s Parliament event. This was a special commemorative debate held online from the main chamber of British Parliament. Deniz and Finlay said the debate was fun and that it was all about King Charles III and what he should do in the future to support young people. The first part was a discussion about mental and physical health care and the second part was about improving online safety and preventing cyber bullying.
