School Council

School Council

At Kingfisher Primary School, we believe the children are at the core of what we do. As a result of this, we believe they should have an active role in making the school the best it can be. At the start of the year, the children wrote manifestos stating why they should represent the school on the school council. We then select two children from each class 

to become councillors. These children will listen to their peers and pass on suggestions about possible improvements or additions to the school and its facilities.


2024 Bake Off

As part of our commitment to fund raising, the children decided it would be great to have a Bake Off in school. As a healthy school, the School council wanted this to run through the cakes. They decided that the cakes should contain a fruit or vegetable or have a sporting theme. The cakes that arrived on the day were fantastic and both children and adults worked really hard. It was hard choosing a winner and the children had to think on their class's behalf. Winners will be announced next week but here are some pictures.

Autumn events

The school council have met over the course of the Autumn term and worked hard to represent the children in each of their classes. 


On behalf of the fellow students, they have helped make some great changes that have benefitted the rest of the children here at Kingfisher Primary School.


  • They have seen new playground equipment chosen to enable us to be active at break times. This new equipment is enjoyed by all year groups and has been a big hit.
  • After speaking to their peers and gathering opinions, they fed back about having after school enrichment clubs that they had a say in. As a result of this, we asked the students what they wanted and built our clubs around that. We are lucky to have high participation and lots of exciting enrichment opportunities tailored to suggestions from the children themselves. New clubs such a photography, Dodgeball and many others have started. This will continue to evolve as the children contribute.
  • They voted, along with the Eco-Council, on the School charity for the upcoming year. This year, the School will be raising money for the RSPB. The children loved the fact it linked in with us being Kingfisher and all the road names nearby being named after birds.
  • Our first fundraising will be a Bake off in the New Year. Watch this space!


Meet the new Kingfisher Primary School councilors. These children have been chosen by their peers to represent each class when working with the adults to make the school a better place. This wee, we had our first meeting where we all got to know each other and sort out our plans for the year. We will meet every week to feedback and help come up with some exciting ideas.


Kingfisher Charity Bake Off

This term, the School Council cam up with a great way of raising money for our School Charity, Young Lives vs Cancer. All children were tasked with the challenge of baking a cake and bringing it into school to be sold to parents at the end of the day. The School Council were in charge of the judging at it was a real challenge as the standards were very high. We were so proud of all the effort that went into the cakes and the turnout at the end of the day. In the end, we raised £195. A big thanks to the PTA for thier help at the sale as well as some fantastic Year 6s.

360 Online Safety Mark

The School council played a big part in helping the school demonstrate its hard work when it came to online safety. On January 9th, some assessors came in to collect evidence and speak to the children. They spoke to the School council, as well as our digital leaders, about online safety here at Kingfisher Primary School. The children represented the school superbly and voiced their opinions with great maturity. As a result, we were awarded the accreditation.

Making the School a better place

The children have been working hard and fielding suggestions from their peers about how to make the school a better place to learn and to grow.

The School councillors did a great job of passing on the suggestions from the different year groups to Mr Green and Mr Glentworth. 


As a result, we have purchased more seating for the playground and lots of new exciting equipment to be used at lunch time. The children love playing connect four and some of the teachers too!

Young Lives vs Cancer

The Year 6 School councillors got together and conducted a poll to put forward a charity for this year. It was decided that a local charity should be chosen and the children picked Young Lives vs Caner. Over the rest of the year, we will be raising money for this fantastic cause.
