Welcome to St James CofE Primary School, a member of Peterborough Diocese Education Trust

School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils.  It gives pupils the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.  Each year in October a new School Council is elected.  One pupil is chosen from each class to sit on the School Council.  Each council member has a deputy to support them.


The School Council work in three teams with different responsibilities:


Year 1 & 2 : School Environment Team    coordinated by Mrs Karen Hobbs


Classes 3L, 4L, 5L & 6L : Fundraising Team    coordinated by Mr Andreas Rose


Classes 3R, 4R, 5R & 6R : Pupil Voice Team     coordinated by Mr Gareth Goddard

In 2016/17 the School Council continue to hold fortnightly meetings.  Some of the topics we are discussing are healthy eating, anti-bullying, charity fundraising events and ways of keeping the school tidy and good to look at.

The School Council continue to run a Healthy Tuck Shop at KS2 breaktimes, when all KS2 pupils may purchase a piece of fresh fruit or a small bag of dried fruit for 20p.  The profits from the Healthy Tuck Shop have been given to charity (Christian Aid) and to the school to enable the purchase of equipment.


We now also run a Breakfast Tuck Shop from 8.40-8.50am in the mornings.  Pupils who have not had breakfast at home may purchase a healthy cereal bar, or a small bag of cereal for 25p.

The full membership of the School Council for 2016/17 is:

Anti-Bullying Poster Competition


Recently the School Council ran an Anti-Bullying Poster Competition.  Here are the winning entries, which were chosen by the School Council.  There is some lovely colouring, but more importantly, the children really showed their understanding of what makes a good friend.  Well done!
