School Council

Leigham School Council 


Our current School Council class representatives were chosen through a democratic process in September 2020. The children prepared a short speech of why they would be the best candidate to represent their class. Due to disruptions caused by Covid they have been voted to continue their roles for this academic year (2021-22). 


This year's primary focus is to improve the way Leigham Primary School deals with litter, following workshops from local organisation 'Clean Our Patch.' 


Their four main concerns/points of action are:


  • Reducing the amount of plastic thrown away by the kitchen
  • Having bins on the playground to stop littering (possible recycling stations)
  • Informing the school, through posters, about the dangers of littering to animals/us/the environment
  • Creating a litter-picking club to run by the School Council on a Friday lunchtime (On a rota for classes)


The objectives set out by school councillors so far have been based on feedback and discussions with each class. We have also shared our aims with the MAT school council. 

Local MP Johnny Mercer visited in May to see our lovely school, discuss the challenges of education funding with Mr Swainson and meet some of our School Council members. We were proud to show him our new prospectus too!
