School Council

The Marden Primary School Council is made up of two children from each class from Year 2 onwards, voted for by their classmates. We meet on average every month to put ideas forward from our classes. Each class has a Class Council meeting to collect the views of pupils which we then take to the main meeting.

Some of the ideas we have worked on in the past have been: choosing each year which charities to support and how to raise money (one local, one national and one global charity); being involved in how to refurbish our wooden play trail; ideas for rewarding good behaviour and work and ideas on how to make break times fun.

School Council Meetings  2019-20:


  • Introduction to the School Council: expected behaviour of reps; how meetings are run; taking minutes etc. Advice from last year’s School Council shared.


We chose the charities to be supported this year:

Local: RSPCA at Leybourne
