School Council

The school council at Castle Hill Infant School comprises two representatives from each of the Year 1 and 2 classes and one representative from each of the Early Years classes, totalling 10 members. There is also an Eco Councillor and an RRR Ambassador from each class.

These young children come together regularly to talk about all aspects of school life and to discuss their ideas for making the school a better place.

They conduct their meetings in a confident and grown-up manner, they record their meetings and any action points are followed up by staff as appropriate.

At the elections held in the Autumn term, the candidates were asked to give their election statement, to say why their classmates should vote for them. Here are some of the statements from our budding politicians.....

"Vote for me because........"

  •  "I have good ideas sometimes"
  • "I'm good at thinking about things and I'm really good at doing Maths..."
  • "I am nice to everybody....sometimes..."
  • "I'm good at spelling tests and sometimes good at reading when teachers help me..."
  • "You like me and play with me all day"
  • "I am a good rememberer..."
  • "I remember stuff, I'm good."
  • "I am very kind to people who are sad."
  • "I am sensible and kind to people"
  • "I'm very kind to girls and boys"
  • "I like teaching people and I'd be nice to people and they'd be nice to me..."
  • "I wait my turn when people have toys..."
  • "I don't hurt anyone..."
