Pupil Voice

At Sheriff Hutton Primary School we value the opinions and talents of all our children. We have several active Councils, voted for by the children and they are involved in many aspects of school life.

We believe

  • Pupil participation should be integral to the school’s vision and ethos.
  • There must be clear structures in place to capture pupils’ views.
  • Pupils should have a range of opportunities to influence decisions which affect them.
  • Staff and pupils should have access to good quality training to help them develop the skills needed to make pupils’ voices heard.

School Council

From Reception to Year 6, children are elected by their class to represent them. At regular meetings they discuss issues that concern the children.

Food Council

Elected representatives from each year group meet with our school cook to discuss the menus and options available for the children to choose a healthy diet.

Eco Council

A group of children who have a keen interest in our environment meet regularly, they want to encourage environmentally friendly practices throughout the school.

Sports Committee

Children from across the school meet to discuss how to engage more children in a range of sporting activities.  They wish to promote healthy lifestyles for all of our children and adults.

Health and Safety

Two members of our school who support Mrs Stell with termly health and safety inspections. They ensure the first aid kit is on the playground for every playtime / lunchtime.

Well-being Champions

Children from KS2 lead assemblies and provide support for their peers around the issue of emotional well-being.

Diversity Ambassadors

They work closely with Mrs Stell and the class teachers to ensure equality for all members of our school community.


Our councils distribute a termly newsletter to all members of our school community.
