Goldfinch Primary School Council

Goldfinch Primary’s pupil voice is led through our school council.

At the beginning of each year, pupils for years 1-6 are given the opportunity to run for school council in our elections. Every candidate prepares and presents a speech outlining why they should be elected to represent their classmates. Once the children have delivered their speeches, each pupil is asked to cast their vote for the best candidate. The children are required to vote for two pupils from their class to represent them throughout the year. Once the votes have been counted, and the results announced, the work of the school council can begin.
