Houghton Primary School

"Working hard to achieve our best"

School Council

Houghton Primary School has a busy and active School Council consisting of all members of year 6. At the start of each school year the pupils of Hawks Class write to 'apply' for the position they are interested in within the council.

At the start of each term the pupils work together in their committees to create an action plan. This details what they want to achieve during the term, the activities and actions which they need to organise and the adults who they may need to access to achieve their goals. They also set a time-frame for their actions. These action plans are then shared with Mrs Smith and, if agreed, the committees are responsible for ensuring that they are successful in achieving their goals. At the end of each term each plan is reviewed and new action plans are created  for the following term.
