School Council

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 Cabinet' with a Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Ministers for different departments.  The Health and Safety ministers will take part in health and safety walks around the school. The Sports ministers will work alongside Mrs Evers to develop sports within our school. The Education ministers 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.

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.

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.


Check out our School Council display. It now has a suggestion box plus a British Values interactive display. Children can write on flags how they show a British Value at our school. Don't forget to look at our work in progress chart to show you our actions and targets for this term.
