Our School Council
School Councillors are elected at the beginning of each school year.
To become a School Councillor, you must be able to give a short talk to their class as to why you would make an outstanding School Councillor.
Once each contender has made their speech, the class votes for who they think would make the best representative.
The person who receives the most votes becomes the elected Councillor for that class.
House Captains who run the meetings have to give a speech to the whole school at the start of each new term in September.
If you want to be a School Councillor tell your teachers and think about all of the things you would do for your class if you were on the School Council.

School Council decided to raise money for Get Kids Going – a charity providing sports equipment so that children with disability can partake in sport – and Air Ambulance which provides a free, essential emergency service but has no funding and relies upon donations. To raise money, Mr. Neal ran The Great North Run and The Chester Marathon. School Council also held a Halloween non-uniform day. These events have raised £800.00
Wilkinson's Got Talent
The School Council held its Talent Show in July 2022 but this year there was a slight difference. Instead of individuals or small groups competing against each other, every class in the school performed an act. The judges picked a favourite act from EYFS, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2 for a grand final. During a very tense final, the judges unanimously voted for T42s as the overall Talent Show Winners 2022!!
The School Fish
The School Council, this year, helped Nursery and T42s purchase two fish to be looked after by the school. Nursery and T42s asked the Council to organise the naming of the fish by holding votes within the classes on the favourite ideas for “fish names” and then purchasing the fish from Holly Bush Nursery. The favourite names voted for were Goldie and Shadow.
Crisp Packet Recycling
The School Council wanted to recycle crisp packets instead of the going in to land fill. They made collection boxes for the dining room and the contents are then sent to recycling points.
