Richard Atkins Primary School



We are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in our School Council.

Aims of the council:

  • To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place.
  • To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.
  • To encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements.
  • To make sure that any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.

Meet our Councillors 




The council exists to ensure that pupils have a voice and are involved in the school decisions that affect them:

  • In class all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching democratic solutions.
  • Class representatives are nominated to serve on the council and are voted in by their classmates; their term of office spans throughout the academic year – September to July.
  • The School Council meets regularly, with a teacher present, to discuss school issues, suggestions and concerns that have been raised by their classmates.
  • Wider issues and ideas that arise in class are discussed further at Council meetings; this ensures that as many pupil voices as possible are heard.
  •  Council members are responsible for carrying out any actions that have been agreed at their meetings.
