School Council


Miss Walker leads the School Council at Crayke Church of England Primary School.  The School Council is made up of children from each Class (from Years 1 to 6). The children are elected by their class to represent them in decisions made on matters relating to our school.  The elections take place in the Autumn Term.

The role of the School Council is to support Governors, staff, parents and pupils to improve aspects of our school.

Message from Miss Walker, School Council Leader:
School Council meet on a Tuesday lunchtime. We explore and discuss a wide range of topics and encourage the children to bring their own ideas to each meeting. Each child is able to contribute what is important to them and work together to make our school a lovely place.
Recently, the School Council have had a special focus on Anti-Bullying. We explored what we as a school already do to combat bullying and what else thr children feel we should do. The School Council worked together to draft our own Anti-Bullying policy.
During Spring term, we have been exploring how we can celebrate our differences as a school. After much discussion, School Council decided they wanted to put on a talent show! We’re incredibly excited to showcase the amazing talent we have within our school.
