School Council

Ralph Butterfield Primary School Council 2021 - 2022

At Ralph Butterfield Primary School, our School Council is made up of representatives from each class from Year 2 to Year 6. Representatives are elected at the start of each school year and represent their class on the council. The council have regular meetings in which they carry out a cycle of action planning, action, review and feedback.

Mrs Stephenson works with the council to discuss items on the School Development Plan, matters raised by pupils in school or directs the council to matters arising in school. The meetings are also used as a forum for pupil voice and feedback whereby the School Council members collect ideas, views and opinions about pupils' school experiences and their suggestions for improvement. These are then shared and debated at School Council meetings and fed back to our Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and the School Governing Body.

Previous decisions and events the School Council have been involved in:

  • Gathering pupil’s views and suggestions for Explore York libraries.

  • Corridor noise monitors.

  • Raising money for a variety of charities.

  • Selecting books for the school library.

Future plans

  • Gathering pupil’s views and suggestions for Feedback and Marking

  • Regularly sharing pupil voice and suggestions from classes to The Senior Leadership Team.

  • Looking at ways to improve our school.

Remember, if you have any great ideas about how to improve our school please let the school council members know.

Thank you for your support.
