Pupil Voice

At Sheriff Hutton Primary School we value the opinions and talents of all our children. We have several active Councils, voted for by the children and they are involved in many aspects of school life.

We believe

  • Pupil participation should be integral to the school’s vision and ethos.
  • There must be clear structures in place to capture pupils’ views.
  • Pupils should have a range of opportunities to influence decisions which affect them.
  • Staff and pupils should have access to good quality training to help them develop the skills needed to make pupils’ voices heard.

School Council

From Reception to Year 6, two children are elected by their class to represent them. At regular meetings they discuss issues that concern the children.

Food Council

Elected representatives from each year group meet with our school cook to discuss the menus and options available for the children to choose a healthy diet.

Eco Council
