School Council

The school council role is very important within Overthorpe Academy. We take the views of our children very seriously and involve them with decison making. Each year two members of every class in Key Stage 1 and 2 are nominated to be a school councillor. Once elected the school council meet regularly to discuss key school issues with the Headteacher. 



School council members have been elected.

Please ask your child who is their class representative.


Current initiatives include:


  • Interviewing new Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher
  • Learning attitudes questionnaire
  • Finding ways to reduce costs eg colour photocopying
  • Liaison with other School Councils
