School Council

Holy Family School Council

Our school council works hard in school to support pupils’ needs, champion pupils’ voices and work with pupils and staff to ensure our school is a happy, safe and engaging place to come to. We look around school for things that we can improve and discuss how to make that happen. We hold meetings and take our ideas to the children in our classes to get their feedback. We share our ideas with Ms McFadden and other staff in school and then work together to make the changes in school.

We are proud to present our new School Council for 2022/2023.

Who are the School Councillors?

Every year children apply for school council jobs from advertisements that are posted around school and in classrooms. Classes then decide how they would like to vote for their class representatives. Classes throughout school held interviews and votes to ensure a fair process.

The school councillors at Holy Family are outstanding representatives that represent the views of all children and get things done. They also tell their classes about what is going on in the council meetings and answer any questions.

The Values of a School Councillor

During our first meeting together, we discussed what makes a good School Councillor and what would be expected of the children.

We decided to create a set of values that we would work towards.

School dinner menu

The school councilors reviewed the previous school dinner menu and discussed their favourite meals and their least favourite meals. We then shared our ideas during our meeting and came up with ideas for a new school dinner menu. We shared this with Ms Mcfadden to which it was then reviewed. Ms Mcfadden then shared with us a draft school dinner menu to review. We discussed our thoughts to the menu such as our likes and dislikes and gave feedback, we were happy with the new food choices of the new school menu and participating towards the improvements of our school dinners choices.

Living Our Mission

The School Council are excited to be involved with a very special mission, creating shoebox gifts for children in need.

The council members are collecting small gifts, including soft, small toys, colouring pencils and toiletries that can be made into special gift boxes that will be sent to up to 8 different countries so that children in need may receive a special gift at Christmas.

Through the charity, Samaritan’s Purse, the school will be organising this mission in November.

We can’t wait to keep you up to date with our progress.


6 Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Corinthians 9:6-8

Anti-Bully Week

The School Council members held a meeting to discuss Anti-Bullying week and we were lucky enough to have a special guest… Miss Dyson.

Together, with Miss Dyson, we spoke about what we would like to share in the assembly and how we could spread the message of ‘One Kind Word’. We all had an important part to play and enjoyed speaking in assembly! Take a look at our video to find out more!

Doncaster's Great Green Read

The School Council were asked to join in with other schools around Doncaster to meet with Ed Miliband MP and Dr Jess French, to discuss climate change.  

Ed Miliband has recently written a book about climate change and wanted to discuss ways in which we can all help to prevent it.

We really enjoyed joining in with the webinar and were lucky enough to have our question answered by Ed Miliband himself!
