School Council


What is the WJS School Council?

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Westbury CE Juniors. We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished, we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to teachers about our ideas and even present them to Mr Hatt!

Who are the School Councillors?

Every year we have an election and vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the school council meetings.


We try to be very professional in the council, so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.

Agenda – a list of things to talk about
