Plaxtol Primary School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community
The school council meets once a term with a member of staff to discuss various school issues, raise new ideas and give feedback on projects and activities.
We hold an election at the beginning of each academic year to elect our school council representatives. The meetings are pupil lead with the children taking the roles of Chair and Secretary.
The school council enables our pupils to learn about the process of electing representatives including thinking, listening, discussing, choosing and agreeing.

Our school council representatives for 2017/18 are:
