Malden Parochial School Council


At Malden Parochial, we value the benefits of operating a School Council. The School Council represents the whole school and as a school we operate as a community. Through our School Council it is hoped that we can develop a balance and wholeness, helping to make our community a harmonious place to live. Our School Council work enables pupils with positive attitudes to exert a positive influence. Everyone will benefit from the work of the School Council.


Our School Council aims to encourage our children to:


Develop confidence and responsibility and make the most of their abilities
Prepare them to play an active role as citizens
Develop good relationships and respect the differences between people
Have a “voice” and to share their opinions and ideas with others


Our School Council aims to ensure our children have:


A safe, happy and fair learning environment
A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them
A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills
An opportunity to take an active role in the organisation of the school

An opportunity to experience a democratic process


Our School Council should encourage pupils to develop:


A sense of ownership over policy and practice

A consensus over school issues such as behaviour

A responsibility towards the school community and environment


Our School Council should give pupils the experience of:


Planning, organising and monitoring small projects

Speaking and listening skills

Debating skills

Mediation and negotiating skills




Class elections will be held every year. Two candidates will be elected from each class from Year 2 upward - one male and one female.




Two representatives from each KS2 class
