Our school council
At Kings Hill we have a very active School Council full of dynamic and hard working pupils who are determined to make a difference, where all year groups are represented throughout the school.

What have we been involved in recently?
- Last term our school council members were involved in a virtual meet up with the school council at John Stainer Primary school in London. We discussed the projects we have been working on, debated our ideas and shared some suggestions for projects going forward.
- We have carried out a vote across the school regarding magazine subscriptions for the newly updated library and we will be subscribing to the most popular magazine so that it is available in the library for anyone to read.
So what do we have coming up?
- The school council will be working on ways to promote more sustainable travel to and from school.
- We will be encouraging pupil voice across the school.
Friday 13 January 2023 Collaborative e-book with John Stainer School The School Council team has been working hard on the collaborative e-book that we are creating along with John Stainer School in London. The children have been focusing on specific themes relating to equality and protected characteristics. This week they have written about examples of discrimination relating to disability. Once the e-book is complete we will let you all know and will send out the link so that you can see the children’s hard work.
Friday 26 November 2021 School Council Update This week the school council took the opportunity to look at some very important data! We sent out a survey to all classes a few weeks ago and asked a variety of questions about how children get to school, if they walk or travel a different way, if they live near to school or far away and if they have a go at ‘park and stride’. There was a lot of information to look at and the council members discussed this together whilst looking at tables, graphs and charts. In summary, we were very pleased to see that approximately 65% of the children get to and from school by foot either walking, scooting, riding a bike or skateboarding. This is great news and helps to reduce pollution in the air around school. We also found that the majority of people coming to school this way do so regularly and often five days a week – what a great start to the day with some fresh air to get the brain cells ready for learning.
