HPS School Council

What does school council look like at Harehills Primary School?

We elect our school councillors at the beginning of each academic year. The councillors chosen are given roles and responsibitlites that they focus on throughout the year. Our councillors speak to their classes every week about anything they would like to have discussed in our meetings. We have school council meeting each week.

Why do we have a school council?

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. A school council is a way for our children to have their say on issues that they feel passionate about.

Current Projects

Make Harehills Primary School an environmentally friendly place!

In school council, we have been discussing ways to reduce our energy usage and save our school money. Our councillors have decided to elect class 'Eco Warriors' whose job it is to remind and encourage the class to help save the environment and lower electricity costs by remembering to turn lights and smart boards off and continue to reduce, reuse and recycle!

Agenda and Minutes

Each week Miss Shaw and Mrs Goodlad write the agenda based on discussions from our previous meeting. Our secretary then writes the minutes from the conversations we have had in our meeting.


If you have any suggestions for school council projects to continue to improve our school community , please speak to your class councillor, teacher or write on the worry wall!
