About our School Council
St Levan School Council are a democratically elected group of 6 children from across both classes who meet on most Thursday lunchtimes to discuss and implement ideas pupils have about their school and the wider community. The councillors record what was discussed and what the next steps will be. Sometimes, additional time is needed if a project is larger and the older council members help organise the younger members to achieve tasks, be it asking the student body for feedback, choosing prize winners or creating the slides needed for an assembly.
As a new idea for the summer term 2022, a new question will be set at each meeting. This question will then be taken back to each class and feedback will be given at the next meeting.
The School Councillors have a very important role as it is their responsibility to feedback information and ideas that have been decided at meetings, ask questions to ensure everyone’s opinions are heard on key issues and also to be there to listen to the view of their class at informal times.
Some activities undertaken by the Student Council
- Council walks to help decide what areas could be the next focus

Two of the amazing speeches made by current members of our Student Council!
I think I should be a Student Councillor because I’m a great organiser when it comes to many subjects and I can be emotionally intelligent and understand people. I have interesting and important ideas and I care, not only about my friends, but everybody and my teachers. I want St Levan to become a more powerful school and I love my school a lot. I will sort out problems well and will always look after school’s property. I will try my best to make things awesome!
S Year 5
Being a Student Councillor has been my dream since Year 1 and I still haven’t been it so it would be more than amazing if I got it. I would like to be a Student Councillor because I have ideas that I want to share because this school is amazing and before I leave, I want to make a difference to it. When I moved here, I felt really shy but everyone made me feel welcome and that I belonged: this is home. I want home to be the best it can be. I will try and solve any problems and listen and keep you updated. I have put my heart into this so please elect me for Student Councillor.
