School Council

We have been learning all about democracy and we celebrate this value throughout the year in many ways, but mainly through our School Council. We value our School Council and are committed to inviting the children’s opinions and including their ideas to improve our school.

Each September, children have the opportunity to canvass for a School Council position. Two children are elected from each class.

The representatives for each year group are:

Year Group Reps
Y1 Emily N & Joseph McG
Y2 Leighton G & Mia S
Y3 Daisy L-M & Mason M
Y4 Frankie A & Faith L
Y5 Lucas F & Pria McL
Y6 Holly W & Annie M


At the first meeting, the School Council set their vision and discussed their aims for the year and what they would need to do ready for the next meeting.

Projects and Action Planning

Projects for this year include:

  • Improving school dinners
  • Working with the HSA to fundraise for more lay equipment
  • Creating a sensory garden

House Captains

Every child in the school, from Nursery to Year 6, have been placed in a House. Your child will remain in the same House for their entire time at Roby Park. We have grouped families together into the same Houses.


The names of the Houses were discussed and chosen by the School Council. They decided that the theme for the Houses would be planets. The planets chosen were Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Neptune. Captains were then chosen from Year 6 to represent each house.

House captains in 2018-19 are:

Our House captains are responsible for calculating weekly winners and organising the league table display in the hall. They also will be liaising with staff to organise House events throughout the year including concerts and sports day.



Our Eco committee meet regularly to consider ways of ensuring that our school makes good use of resources and to take forward plans and activities. Each class has two representatives. Our committee members are busy focusing on recycling and environmental reviews this term and next.  Our findings will determine our action plan for 2019.

The representatives for each year group are:
