School Council


Kippax Greenfield’s School Council is made up of 2 representatives from each class from Reception up to Class 6. The children begin their election campaigns by writing their manifestos, giving speeches and campaigning. The outgoing School Council act as the returning officers and organise the polling station, complete with ballot papers, voting booths and of course the ballot box.

The School Council meet on a regular basis to discuss ideas on how to improve the school for all. For example, after discussions with class members and school cooks, the school council revised the school lunch menu and introduced a banding system to ensure every child gets their first choice of meal.

Get involved!

Election fever hits Kippax Greenfield Primary School every two years. Our last election was December 2015. We will be hitting the campaign trail again in the Spring of 2018. During the election period, the whole school learns about the history of democracy, democracy in our country and how we can get involved in the democratic process and it impacts on our lives.

Pupils who wish to run for the School Council begin their election campaign by preparing their publicity. They deliver a speech to their class detailing their manifesto and the reasons why they make a good candidate for the School Council.

Election fever! Election fever!
