School Council

We believe that listening to the viewpoints of our children at Nailsworth C of E Primary School is vital to maintaining a happy, purposeful and inspiring environment. An important way that children can have their voice heard and can participate actively in the school, local and wider community, is through the school council.

What is the School Council?

The School Council are democratically elected pupil representatives from the classes of Nailsworth C of E Primary School. Each class has voted for their two representatives.


We have a Chair Person, a Co-Chair Person and a Secretary, with two representatives from each class, from years 1 to 6.


It is the School Council’s job to:

  • plan and organise events;
  • do fundraising for charities like World Book Day (£542 raised) and Children in Need (£299.25 raised). You can see photos from our Children in Need events below;
  • help to run the Scholastic Book Fair which helps us raise money to buy more books for the school. In 2019, we raised £491 in free books for the school!
  • have meetings a couple of times a month which we take very seriously, as it will always be an important topic;
  • take responsibility for interviewing new staff members, writing down the key details about them and giving our opinion on who would be best for the job. We interviewed our new deputy head, for example.
