Welcome to Lons Infant School!

School Council

Welcome to the School Council page

Here you will find everything you need to know about being a member of the school council from how to become one, to the roles and responsibilities of a councillor.



Every new year in September we hold our school council elections and each of the classes elect two representatives to become part of the school council.


You will receive a badge so that everyone knows who you are and who represents the student voice.


Being a school councillor is a very responsible position bas you have to have a lot of sensible ideas and sometimes have to do things in your lunchtimes. It is your chance to play an important part in our Lons community. You may feel a little nervous about being elected but it is exciting to see what happens when people share their ideas.


What do the school council do?

The school council take parts in lots of activities including:

  • listening to the views and concerns of other pupils;
  • representing these concerns and views to teachers;
  • coming up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions;
  • thinking of ways to contribute to our local environment;
  • fundraising events for Lons and other charities.


The school council meet regularly and are involved in making decisions about all aspects of school life. They consult with the children in their classes and put forward suggestions to improve the quality of the school environment. The school council help out with special assemblies, harvest, school fayre, fundraising events and many more events. They report to the rest of the school in assemblies and have suggestion box for all children to share ideas and make comments. The school council collect these and attempt to act on them.


Some of the projects they have proposed have already successfully been put into place e.g. playground equipment and improvements to the playground. We look forward to more ideas.
