School Council

School Council Logo

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. 

"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."
