Learn, Lead, Achieve, Together We Succeed

Pupil Voice

Tansley Primary School Council 

The aim of our school council is to promote citizenship and to give the children a voice within our school.


Our School Council meets once a week.  Children from Y1 upwards represent their own class on the School Council. The children are elected to the School Council by their peers. They take whole school issues and ideas from their own class councils and feed them into the School Council. They also share ideas and decisions from School Council with their class. Decisions made within School Council can, and do, have a real impact on the rest of the school. Mrs Evers supports the children to run the school council meetings.


Our School Council has a School Leader, Health and Wellbeing, E-safety, Learning, The Environment and Charity Leaders.  The Well being and Health Leaders will take part in health and safety walks around the school and will encourage positive play times and promote well being.  The Learning leader will be involved in the development of our Curriculum, they will feedback pupils' views about the new curriculum to the class teachers and inform future planning. The Environment Leader will work to encourage the school to be more Eco friendly. The Charity Leader will choose the charities which we will be supporting over the academic year. The E-safety Leader will support and promote safety when online.

Powerpoint created by School Council

Over the Summer Term our focus is on how we can make our school more Eco friendly. We have started by creating an ECO Code.

School House Teams

We have decided as a School Council to have House teams. The School Council has voted for four House Teams. These are: Hardwick (Green), Bolsover (Yellow), Blue John (Blue) and Riber (Red). The shields have been designed by pupils in the school, as part of a competition. These are the winning shields for each house team.
