St Mary's

Catholic Primary School

Eco Council



St Mary's Catholic Primary School recognises the importance of having a pupil voice and ensuring it is is heard. For this reason, children involved in the Eco Council are part of the decision-making process.

Councillors are elected by their peers and each class is represented by two councillors. They meet on a regular basis and then report back to their classes through Class Council meetings, giving all children some involvement in the decision making process.


The School Council met for the first time in September for a getting to know each other session. They asked each other such questions as, “Who is you favourite superhero?” and, “What would your superpower be if you were a superhero?"


Mrs Fletcher then asked the council what they thought the School Council should or could do. There will be regular meetings held to discuss what the council would like to focus on and improve.


Our current school council members are:

Year 6 - Lucy and Frank

Year 5 - Rory and Liam

Year 4 - Lily and Rocco

Year 3 - Sebastian and Beth

Year 2 -  Sam and William
