School Council

At Oakley Infant School the school council understand that every child has the right to a voice and for their opinion to be taken seriously.

The School Council attended the cluster conference on Friday 24th January. The focus this year was well being. We took part in activities that involved collaboration, resilience and creativity. They also made us feel good and connect with other people. We played in a Samba band, tested our skills in dodgeball, learnt calming techniques in yoga, spoke different languages and had a coaching session from CHAMPs. What a brilliant day we had!

School Council Conference 2020

Harvest food collection. The school council collected up all the food donated around the school for the charity Spotlight. We understand that every child has the right to nutritious food - Article 24 UNCRC. The school council helped to pack up the food ready to be transported to families in need.


Congratulations to our new Year 1 and Year 2 School Councillors.

Also, a huge well done to all those children who ran for election by putting lots of effort into creating eye-catching campaign posters and speaking infront of their class. 


Thank you to everyone who voted.

Polling day 2019! As part of democracy week we elected the new Year 1 and Year 2 school council. We believe every child has the right to have their say.

Democracy Week

This week we are thinking about the UNCRC Article 12 'Every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them, and to have their views listened to.'

In our school every child has the right to have their opinion and ideas heard and listened carefully too. We work hard with our school council to make sure that our school is a safe, happy and healthy environment to learn and play in, and one which is created with the children, not just for the children.


A huge thank you to our post school councillors for all your hard work and dedication.


This week we are campaigning for votes from our class to elect new school councillors.

Year 1 and Year 2 classes will be holding their voting day on Thursday complete with polling card, candidate list and ballot boxes for a democratic voting day. Year R will hold their voting day in the Spring.


The new school councillors will be announced on Friday during Celebration Assembly.


Good Luck candidates!
