What is the School Council?

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Woodgate. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.

Who are the School Councillors?
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.


We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.

Agenda - a list of things to talk about

Visit to Birmingham Council House


Take a look at the photos from our visit to the Council House, where we met the Deputy Lord Mayor (also a former pupil of Woodgate Primary) John Lines. He gave us a tour around the Council House and informed us about his former role of Lord Mayor.
