SJPS Councillors 🤩



On Monday 8th October 2018, the Year 6 school councillors Stephen and Grace arranged the school council elections. Each KS2 class were invited to vote democratically for 2 members to be on the council for each class. Each nominee had produced a manifesto to represent and support their proposal. Ballot boxes were placed in the hall and each class came down to the hall to vote. The elected members were announced on Friday 12th in assembly. they are now proudly wearing their school council badges and we are holding our first meeting of the school year on Tuesday 30th November 2018. We will decide on roles and activities for the year.  The school council will have the responsibility to communicate their decisions to their classes. It is going to be another great year for decision making and pupil voice.

The School Councillors have been very busy this term already! Throughout this week we have sold poppies and other poppy related items around school to raise money for the Royal British Legion, to remember the soldiers of the past and present. We went to every class and would like to thank all of the children and parents who have donated to this fantastic charity.

We will keep updating you with all of our other responsibilities within school!

The children are very excited to announce the creation of the St Joseph's School Council this year. 


Year 6 have had their first experience of voting in an election. Eight brave students worked hard to write and present their manifestos to the rest of the year group who voted for their favourite candidates. The children chosen to represent Year 6 are; Ellie-Mai Hampson, Abby Elwell, Julia Nedza and Lexie Stranack. 


On Tuesday afternoon the rest of the school  were given the opportunity to vote for their new School Council members. Pupils enjoyed being able to post their secret ballots in the boxes and we eagerly await the results in Friday's assembly!

Being a member of the School Council is extremely prestigious and has proved very popular at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.

The pupils take the role very seriously and we annually ask the children to write and deliver make a speech to demonstrate their worthiness for this role. Each class then votes for two representatives to be on the School Council.

The School Council meets regularly and there is an agenda and minutes are taken. The notice board outside the school hall shows these and the School Council’s many activities.

We greatly value all their views and the children in their classes voted democratically for these children to be their representatives. The School Council at St Joseph’s are also part of the Children's Parliament for Lancashire and Preston’s School Council.

This year the school council have been tasked to look at improving:-

  • Physical Activity
  • Emotional Health and Well Being
  • Ethos
  • Community and partners.

They have also created their own School Council logo which is shown on this page.
