School Council / Pupil Leadership Team
Mayville Primary School has an active pupils 'Leadership Team' which works hard to represent the views of the pupils throughout the school. The school is keen to ensure that pupils’ opinions are listened to and acted upon wherever possible.
The 'Leadership Team' is an elected body of pupils, with two class representatives from Year 1 to Year 6. They meet with class teachers on a regular basis, providing feedback from Leadership Meetings and report back to our Headteacher. The 'Leadership Team' also helps to organise campaigns and fund-raising activities throughout the year.
The elected Representatives are usually taken to the Houses of Parliament to see ‘Democracy in Action’ and learn how they should represent their own ‘constituencies’.

Councillors meet once a week to discuss matters and projects both in and out of school. They take issues to and from their classes for ideas and suggestions.
In previous years, the School Council have taken part in ‘Make a Difference Challenge,’ raising funds and campaigning against real bearskins being used for soldiers’ helmets and to help stray dogs and Battersea Dogs’ Home.

All this is on top of councillors taking issues, which children are concerned about in school to the head teacher, or other staff members. One of their success is to have successfully lobbied for new play equipment, which the SLT and Trustees have happily seen provided.
