Hello and welcome to our page.

What is School Council?

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Emmanuel Holcombe. 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 and sometimes we have to make phone calls to people outside of the school.

Who are the School Councillors?

Every year we run an election campaign to 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 council meetings and put the minutes up in the classroom.


Absolutely fantastic afternoon!! The children really surprised us with nearly EVERYONE, including the reception children, running to the top! WELL DONE! We also raised a staggering £.... for cancer research!
