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.

Autumn 2022

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

Summer 2022

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

Spring 2022

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.

Recycling Bins

July 07, 2019

Our School Councillors recently went around their classes to find out what items could be recycled within the classroom. The councillors then had another meeting to discuss the list of items they had created and ordered the items from the easiest to most difficult to recycle.


Following this, a representative from the Wolverhampton City Council came to visit the school and we explained our proposal to try and recycle more but who would collect the recycling?

The Wolverhampton City Council suggested that our school should receive much bigger mixed recycling bins for the school to empty recycling into each day. Our business manager organised this and Wilkinson Primary School now have this in place. 

Finally, the School Council met with the Headteacher to discuss whether it was possible to purchase new mixed recycling bins for the classrooms as they want to order recycling bins that are attention grabbing so as to raise attention within the classrooms.

Pet Week - 2018

​Pet week is an exciting week in the Summer term in which children can bring a caged pet from home and give a talk about how to look after animals. 


As part of pet week the School Council have been getting ideas from classmates about which charity they would like to support. They decided a local charity, Birmingham Dog's Home, would be a good idea.


The Council even visited the Dog's Home to ask some questions and gain insight into the work they do. 

Spring Term - 2018
