School Council and School Sports Council


At Stoke Row the children are at the heart of the school and their ideas and opinions are highly valued. Every year pupils from each class vote for a boy and a girl in their year group to represent them in school council and school sports council.

School council meet regularly during the term with a member of staff and discuss events the children would like to run and any changes or improvements they would like to make to the school. School council regularly organise fundraising events such as dress up days for Red Nose Day, Children in Need and very importantly they also judge our annual Egg decorating competition! School council members also attend partnership events representing our school in Oxfordshire.

Some of the reasons children wanted to be a School Councillor are :

“I wanted to make a difference.”
“I wanted school to be a better place for all the children.”
“I wanted to improve the play facilities.”
“I enjoy the responsibility and I think our ideas are listened to.”
“I wanted to be voice for the people in my class. “

As with school council, every year pupils from each class are chosen for a boy and a girl in their year group to represent them in the sports council.  They meet regularly, with our PE lead Laura Poulton, and discuss ways of keeping our school physically active, for example planning activities  to run at morning play times.  They also plan Sports Relief and fundraising events.
