Pupil Council


As Pupil Council we see ourselves as the voice of all pupils in the school. Our links with staff, parents, pupils, the governors and community enable us to participate in decisions about teaching, learning, fundraising and the success of our school.

John Ball has an active Pupil Council which ensures pupils’ voices are heard in the running of the school. It works as follows:

  • Each class elects two members to the Council each year (a girl and a boy).
  • The Council meets each week during term time and discusses issues raised by pupils.
  • Class representatives report back to their class and help make the ideas they agree on happen.

Examples of ideas that the Pupil Council has made happen include:

  • lunchtime clubs as an alternative for pupils who prefer a quieter playtime
  • tuck shop
  • rewards for top attendance and punctuality

If you want to find out who is on the Pupil Council this year, check out the board next to the school reception (on the right as you go into the key stage 2 corridor).

If you have a good idea for the School, let your Pupil Council representatives know and they can raise it at the next meeting. There is a suggestion box next to their board.
