School Council Elections 2017

19th September 2017

What is a School Councillor?

A School Councillor is someone who represents their year group and school on a School Council.

Would you like to be a School Councillor?

  • You need to write a short speech about why you think you would be a good class representative and present this to your year group. They will then decide who they want to put forward for the School Council.
  • Candidates should set about convincing their classmates that they are the best candidate for the job of School Councillor. During the week of the 25th September, you can make posters and rosettes to encourage others to vote for you.
  • Your class will be asked to vote for the person who they think will best represent them at School Council meetings. This will happen on the 28th September.

How do we vote at Longmoor?

All children in years 2-6 will be given a ballot paper. You will vote for two pupils who you think will be best for the role of School Councillor. Your vote will be placed in a ballot box in the hall.

Counting the Votes

Mrs. James will count the votes from each year group. The four pupils with the most votes from each year group will be elected as School Councillors for that year group.


The results will be announced and School Council badges will be given out during celebration assembly on Friday 29th September 2017.
