Pupil voice is extremely important to life at Kirk Merrington Primary School. At the beginning of each school year, children learn about ‘Democracy’ and are given the opportunity to be part of our school council. A new school council is elected with representatives from every class from Year 1 to Year 6. All school council representatives are elected by their class peers and are involved in making our school a better place to learn.
The school council meets regularly to speak on behalf of the whole school and make decisions about school life. Class representatives feedback ideas from meetings to their classes. The school council allows the opinions of our pupils to be valued and shared with the Headteacher and other members of staff.

We also have a ‘Sports Crew’. These children attend an interview to be selected. They organise playground games, help to choose sports clubs and promote being active and the benefits of exercise.
