Over 115 children stood in the 2021 School Council elections, posting their thoughts in posters, hustings and more.

School Council met to update the school's anti-bullying policy and redesigned the poster as shown below. This included a lot of suggestions for adjusting both the presentation and wording of the document. The children also decided to simplify the wording for the KS1 version of posters.

United Nations Global Goals

The school council worked with Chitra, Chetna and Chaitali to think about the United Nations Global Goals and more that we can do to help sustain our amazing planet. The councillors fed back to class their findings and discussions had with our Indian partners.

What is Equality? How can we be heroes of social justice in Southroyd?

As part of our half term focus on social justice and equality, in January 2017, we looked as a school at heroes like Martin Luther KIng and Malala Yousufzai, and their stance for equality. We asked class councils to rethink about how they can be "heroes of social justice" within Southroyd.
