School Council

What is a School Council?

Sedley’s School Council is made up of a boy and a girl from each year group (years 1-6) voted by their peers at a secret ballot in the school hall. Our School Council Representatives are very enthusiastic and engaged to adopt the responsibility of their School Council role.  

Our first job is to elect a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.  The Chair heads the meetings with the guidance of the Council lead, the Secretary minutes the meetings and the Treasurer balances the books with our fundraising funds.


The School Council Representatives meet once a month and are responsible for voicing the opinions and needs of the children within the school over the academic year.  They will also decide how any funds raised will be spent and which exciting projects will be organised in the coming year.  

Mrs Moore - School Council lead.


Our 2019 School Council children are Y6 Jasmine (Chair),  Y6 Hayden (Vice-Chair),  Y5 Megan (Secretary), Y5 Fidel (Vice-Treasurer), Y4 Archie (Treasurer), 

Y4 Sadie, Y3 Oliver, Y3 Brooke, Y2 Jack, Y2 Isabella, Y1 Nye, Y1 Emmy .


We have two ideas. A Fundraising idea and a Competition. 

Fundraising Time: The children have written to the parents requesting to donate an empty glass jar for the School Council to decorate, but also, to donate some things we can put inside to glass jar to sell to the children. 


Competition Time: Plant a seed and watch it grow and we will pot it in our Reflective Area in the playground.   The best looking 3 plants will win a prize.  The children have written letters to the supermarkets for prize donations. 

Our first fundraising idea is to sell second hand DVD's and unwanted Christmas decorations.  Fantastic news! We raised £69.50 which is a great start. 

Their first job will be to encourage parents and children to fill a shoe-box full of goodies for the 'Love In A Box' Mustard Seed Relief Mission.  Collection of the shoe-boxes is on 14th November 2019.  

Say Hello to Captain Sedley , he is the School Council's new fundraising hero.                

As you can see we are starting to give Captain Sedley some superpowers by colouring him in with our fundraising.

Voting for the new School Council took place on Monday 7th October 2019
