School Council

We have a very active school council here at Priory Fields, with children who are in years 3 to 6 elected to represent their class on the school council and Years R-2 are represented by a year 6 child who speaks on their behalf. 

Our pledge

"I promise to do my best, I am proud that I have been elected as a school councillor. I will take my role seriously and am committed to the school and the school council. I will always uphold the school values and encourage others to do so. I will be a positive role model for the school and will wear my jumper with pride."


 Our chosen charities

At the start of the year, we speak to our classes to find out what charities they would like to support. This year, we have decided to support Age UK in Dover and Kent Wildlife Trust. 

 We have already held our first charity event, read about it here.

When I got there the children kept saying my name.  I got lots of hugs and they told me about what they had been doing in class.  We watched a video and played with the children.
