School Council

We are an Eco School!

Church End school council 2022/23

What is the School Council? 

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Marston Moreteyne VC School. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do.

Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things.

Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.


What is the Purpose?

Our purpose is to be the voice of the students. We aim to get things done to make our school better. To find ways to improve our school and to give every pupil a voice and to make all decision making fair.


Who are the School Councillors? 

Every year we run an election campaign to vote for a new representative for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom. They can record any information in their school council book.




School council meetings are held regularly.

Decisions will be made using a hands up or blind voting system. If a decision can’t be reached. Ideas and questions are put to classes/the whole school before they are voted on in school council.





The School Council is made up of children from each class ~ within Key Stages 1 and 2.


The School Council Members are elected by their classmates on an annual basis. The School Council meet regularly to discuss the needs of the school, any issues that the children may have and to plan future projects ~ including fund-raising ideas.


One of the issues for our children was the use of the ‘Buddy Bus Stop’ bench. The School Councillors now organise a Playground Buddy rota to facilitate friendships. 


Another successful project was The Dog Day! The children brought their ‘dogs’ to school with a donation ~ £363.03 was collected; the money went to support P.A.T. dogs (Pets As Therapy), Guide Dogs  and as part of an annual sponsorship of Evasta, a child in Northern Uganda through the 'One Step at a Time' charity.  


We now have  regular weekly visits from our two P.A.T. dogs - Bert visits the children at our Church End site and Lola visits the children at our Forest End site. Meet them below. 

The school dogs!
