School Council


School Council meet on a fortnightly basis on Monday lunchtimes and are organised by our School Council coordinator Rebbe Richman. The council is made of representatives from Year 1 to Year 6 and children are selected by a peer based voting system.

School Council represents the children's voice, giving all children at BJCFPS the chance to share their ideas and have their say. We encourage everyone to think of great ideas to help the school to become even more effective. Ideas / issues are passed on to the school council. At the meetings they discuss, investigate, plan, take action or find someone who can help. 

They meet to discuss ways we can help the school to become even better. Sometimes the council will take ideas from the children, others from the staff as well as actions from the Governors and our Principal. Agendas are planned together and children take the lead on these. 

Last year, the School Council was involved with improving the school lunch menu. This included themed lunch days- the children particularly enjoyed the Chinese lunch day. They also held a Bring & Buy Sale, raising money for Chai Cancer Care.  Year 6 led the event, which was a great success, raising £737.  Thank you everyone for contributing by supplying items to sell and for bringing in money to buy them.  Thank you to the Year 6 children who set up the stalls and organised the sale.


Spring 2022 Update

A quick update from Rabbi Richman - 

We are really excited to have our Student Council up and running again after we had to put a pause on it due to the Covid pandemic. 

We meet bi-weekly with a focus on empowering our BJPS children to take ownership of school issues they have raised.  So far we have looked into a broad range of ideas ranging from fun wet break ideas to recycling/litter monitors.

We are looking forward to the Summer term where we plan on putting our ideas into action and making positive changes at BJPS!
