Pupil Leadership

Yew Tree School Council

The School Council play a vital role in the life of our school.  Each class from Year 1 to Year 6 appoints a School Council Rep with elections taking place at the end of the first week in September. Newly appointed reps then serve for an entire year.


School Council reps meet each half term and discuss a range of matters relating to the life of school and the wider community.  They are the ‘pupils voice’ and can share concerns, questions and thoughts from their class members.  They also play a key role in liaising with the Governing Body to ensure that the school is a positive place to be.  School Council Reps will engage with the wider community and understand the importance of a democratic society.  They also play a role in fund raising and supporting a range of charities.


The School Council is overseen by Ms Johal.



Make A Difference

We don’t just talk we get things done.


  • We think of others and run successful fund raising campaigns for charities including: Sport Relief; Children in Need and Comic Relief. We will also be looking to support local charities within our community. 
  • We hope to get accreditation for all the hard work we are going to put in. We also hope to arrange a visit to our local council and also visit our local MP for West Bromwich East at the Houses of Parliament so we can see Democracy in action!

Other roles within school for children


Eco Ambassador

Each class will appoint an Eco Ambassador.  This group of pupils are responsible for the promotion of looking after the school environment and our role in looking after the world.  The ambassadors will oversee the need to save energy in the class, will implement (with the support of their peers) ways in which they can reuse or recycle.  They will ensure waste is kept to a minimum and that electricity/water is used wisely.


In order to support with this, the Eco Ambassadors will meet each half term and will discuss strategies that can be shared with the School Council, Governing Body and Senior Leaders.  


There are also many other roles within each classroom. Ask your children about these roles
