School Council

What is our School Council?

Each year, two students from each class are elected by their peers to represent their, to help improve the school and to promote participation in a range of school, community and national events. Our school council is for everybody and we aim to develop and promote pupil voice and service to others.

What do we do?

Fundraising for the Children’s Cancer Charity RWI

As a school community, we all wanted to support the work of a children’s cancer charity that had offered wonderful care to one of our pupils. We organized a range of activities, including a family sponsored walk and a dedicated school day to help to raise funds. Thanks to the generous support of pupils, staff and families, we raised over £15,000.

Wearing blue, in recognition of Bailey’s favourite football team Chelsea was a terrific success.

Bedale Litter Pick

On the 3rd Sunday of every month, a growing group of pupils and parents gather to pick up litter around the town. Rain or shine, we have helped to tidy up the park, the High Street, the beck and further afield. It is so good when local people thank us for helping to keep Bedale beautiful.

What an amazing morning children and families from Bedale Primary School had on Sunday 16th May. We are proud to be a part of Bedale Litter Busters and a large number of our children woke early to take part in a ‘town tidy.’ As ever, we help with litter picking but also planting flowers, weeding, cleaning signs and helping to create a plant swap in what used to be the old phone box.

And in recognition of the hard work and commitment of our children,  Bedale councillors presented our children with commemorative plaques.

Please come and join us, we meet on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 9am, outside House and Home. As Katie in Year 4 said, ‘It’s great fun. Can I come back next month?’
