Junior School

School Council


The School Council at Firside consists of two representatives from each class in the school. Councillors are elected by their classmates in the Autumn Term.

The School Council meets several times each half term to discuss ideas from pupils about how to improve the school. School Councillors take ideas from their class to meetings, as well as take ideas back to them to be discussed. In meetings the council make decisions and vote on ideas put forward. These meetings give every child in the school the opportunity to have a voice. Our School Council are often chosen to represent the school as our ambassadors at local events and activities such as events with local charities.

The School Council works towards making the school a better place for everyone.

Here are some of our School Councillors making Christmas decorations as part of our work with the charity Friend in Deed.


Some of our School Council members were chosen to represent Firside at a launch event for the GoGo T-Rex trail in Norwich.
