School Council

The School Council of Manor Leas Infant School consists of two representatives of each class, from Reception to Year Two. The Council meets throughout the school year to express views and make decisions.


Staff are always keen to know the views of our pupils. The councillors gather the views of their fellow classmates, then share their opinions at the school council meetings. 

Recent decisions have included:

  • whether to have a school pet and if so, what kind
  • how to improve playtimes
  • the naming and organisation of the house system

The School Council even interview people for vacancies in school. (Candidates have remarked about how challenging this aspect of the selection was!)


Every autumn, pupils at Manor Leas Infant School elect two school councillors from each class.

Based on election speeches, they vote for the candidate who they think will represent them best.

If you want to be part of the School Council, tell your teacher when it’s close to election time and prepare your speech well.


In the meantime, make sure you let your current class councillors know your views!
