School Council

At Masefield 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 purpose of our School Council is to encourage pupils to get involved in issues that concern them in and around school and the School Council act as the voice for the other children in school. There are lots of positive outcomes to having a School Council, including positive attitudes to learning, improved relationships, raised self-esteem and improved self-confidence. Council members act as a voice for their classmates and, through their experiences, will learn a great deal about democracy and teamwork.

Our School Council meet every 3 weeks with Miss Jolly where the Councillors discuss issues with their classes and bring concerns and suggestions back to the council.

Projects the School Council have been involved with include fundraising for charities such as Red Nose Day, Urban Outreach and Young Minds UK. The Councillors have also met with other people and organisations including the Bolton Youth MPs and the Mayor Bolton to further develop their understanding of the positive impact their position can have for our children at Masefield.
