School Council / Cyngor Ysgol

Our School Council

Children from each class from Year 1 to Yr 6 are elected by their classmates to represent the class on the School Council.


Their job is to take issues and ideas from their own class councils and feed them into the School Council. They also share ideas and decisions from School Council with their class.


Decisions made within School Council can, and do, have a real impact on the rest of the school.


The School Council meets at least twice a term and there are also lots of meetings for smaller groups of the School Council to work on specific projects. This is in addition to the events the School Council lead. Class Council Meetings are held regularly in class.

Please see our Constitution below

How do we elect School Council Members?

Each candidate produces a manifesto and presents it to their class.

We then work with the Wrexham Electoral Office and set up polling booths and a ballot box in our school hall. Children cast their votes for the candidate they want to win confidentially.

Have a look at some of our amazing manifestos

Polling day is a very big deal at Alexandra CP School
