School Council - Pupil Voice

School Council 2020 2021

I suppose you are wondering what has happened to The Round House Primary Academy School Council?  The School Council has always been an important part of our school.  It allows the pupils to have their say about different matters which affect our school, well-being and our learning.  Every pupil has the right to express their ideas and to have a student voice.

The classes have nominated and elected their school council representatives for this year.

Sadly, we cannot meet weekly after school as we would usually at the moment, so will be meeting virtually every month.  We can still voice our concerns and ideas about the school to our School Council Representatives who will write these ideas down in the books provided and feed this back at the monthly meetings.

Our main areas of focus for this term are as follows:-


  1. How can we look after our pupils, even though we are in our bubbles?
  2. How can we keep in touch with each other within the school?
  3. How can we help anyone who has worries or concerns?
  4. What whole school fun activities could we all do to raise the spirits and well-being?



Here are our school council representatives for this year.



Eco Council

Members of school council have become member of our Eco Committee. 

For nearly 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award.

Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.

We have held a few meetings and are working towards our bronze award.

More information about our plans are below. 

Monday 21st January

School Council had their first meeting of 2019 today. We discussed our focus for this half term. We are going to be looking at how we can make our school more environmentally friendly and reduce the amount of plastic that we use.

We read some articles and watched some videos to find out information ready to share with our classes this week. Watch this space over the coming weeks for what we do next! In the meantime, have a look at this video about how plastic is causing problems in our environment.


Friday 16th November 2018 - Children in Need

Just to day a huge thank you for all the pennies, teddies and entries for the Pudsey competition. Although we have not yet counted all the money, I am sure that the children have helped raise a great amount for Children in Need. The winners of the teddy and Pudsey competition will be announced in assembly on Monday and all children have been given a certificate to say thank you for their efforts. 
The Pudsey competition was a great success with over 120 entries and 33 correct ones. We hope you enjoyed guessing who the 'Pudseys' were. We know that some were easier than others!
The dress the teddy competition was extremely hard to judge as there were so many excellent outfits. Thank you to everyone for making the fundraising this year such a success.

Children in Need 2018

School Council have been busy over the last week thinking of ideas to raise money for Children in Need.  This year they have decided on the following ideas:

  • Bring your teddy to school day. Competition and prize for the best dressed Teddy.
  • Penny Pudsey - bring in your 1p an 2p coins to create a large Pudsey bear
  • Guess the Pudsey competition - guess the members of staff who are hiding behind Pudsey
  • School Council will be selling wristbands after school from Monday 12th November
