School Council


Purpose of Pupil Voice

The School Council are an important and valuable part of the team at The Grove. They meet termly as a whole group and sometimes support the work of the two Trowbridge Youth Parliament representatives of our school. They share their opinions and thoughts from EYFS-Y6 about topical matters to them. We find that it is crucial to involve every age within our school as everybody has an important view to share. The main aim of our school council is to make sure that The Grove provides the very best for our children. We want to make sure that every child knows that their voice is heard and that their opinions really do matter!


The school council consists of 14 children (a boy and a girl) from every class in the school. They were chosen as a representative by their class peers, after sharing with their class why they should be chosen. The classes then voted for the best candidate.

Our aim for 2022-2023

This year’s Number 1 programme focusses on pride in our school and the community. Under the puzzle piece of ‘Hold a community event’ the children will work alongside the school’s fundraising group, POTS. Their role will include writing and delivering invitations to the local community and designing a poster to advertise the event to the wider community and people of our town.

Under the umbrella ‘Pride in my school’ the school council will play a part in redeveloping the pond area. As well as being involved in the practical elements of clearing and tidying the area they will be involved in raising funds to complete the project. This will include writing to Wessex Water, local shops and parents asking for funding, resources and help to carry out the improvements.

Charity Support

Our aim for 2021-22 was to collectively choose a new local charity for the whole school to support and to help fundraise and regularly contact and communicate with the chosen charity. The charity chosen was Dorothy House and we managed to raise £110.

Our aim for 2022-23 is to support the school and our local community and we will be doing this in a number of ways.

Firstly, we will oversee the collection for Harvest. As the items are donated we will sort through them and put each item into food groups. Our aim is to create a Harvest display to share with the parents when they come for the Harvest celebrations. We will then bag the items ready for donation to The Trowbridge Storehouse Foodbank.

Our next project will be in the New Year when we will be supporting the ‘Washbag’ project. Miss Pilling supports a charity that puts together essential items such as shampoo, body wash, toothbrushes and toothpaste and donates them to Secondary aged children who need them. The children plan to hold a non-uniform day where staff and pupils can donate items for the bags. The children will create posters and a collection box for their class to place the items in.

As a school we get lots of lost property items! We will be exploring ways of helping to reunite items with their owners, which, in turn will help keep some areas of our school tidy.
