School Council

Welcome to St Gregory's Catholic Academy Council Page. Take a look!

The school council is a group of children who represent their peers and bring forward their views to improve the school and its grounds.  The members of the school council are two pupils from each class from Years 1-6  (usually one boy and one girl). The school council has been running since 2005 and our achievements have grown each year. Previously, we developed our first 'School Council Charter' so we ensure we deliver on our responsibilities as school leaders;





  • Be a good listener; speak up for your class

  • Be a reliable role model; follow the school Respect Rules

  • Be a confident communicator; take away the right message

  • Be a creative problem solver; consider different solutions

  • Be brave; talk honestly about the issue


At the meetings, we decide what we can do to improve the school.  We don’t just decide ourselves what to do, our class peers put their ideas down too through questionnaires and class/peer discussions.
To decide on the class representative we hold a class election in September. We also nominate a new Chair Person each year.  

This year we have held meetings to make decisions about key issues such as; whether children should be allowed to wear earrings, how to improve health and wellbeing for children within the school and improving playtimes (creating our own playground rules). This year we have new priorities which are reflected in our school council school priorities board, which is displayed within our school corridors.
