About the School Council

Our School Council is an integral part of life at Houldsworth Valley and they play an important part in school improvement.

Annually elections are held. Three children are nominated per class to stand for each position. They canvas for votes through designing their own posters and leaflets and deliver a speech  in assembly to their constituency.

Throughout the year the children meet with Miss Eaton which enables them to communicate and pitch new ideas of ways to improve the school. School Council meetings are followed up by Class Council meetings where representatives are able to establish the views and opinions of their peers through leading debates alongside their class teacher.
