Meeting the Mayor of Oldham

On Wednesday 11th July, School Council children met the Mayor. They gave him a short tour of the school and explained why they love learning at Royton Hall. After that, he attended the final meeting of the school year, along with Mr Butterworth.

Look out for them in the local newspaper soon.

What an busy and exciting year it has been for School Council.




Healthy schools

School council were asked to carry out a survey by Mrs Glynn. They asked children what they knew about healthy snacks and food.

The School Council were then asked to design a healthy lunch box and Lily’s was chosen as the winner. Lily’s design was sent home to parents/carers on a letter.

Children are now rewarded with stickers at break time and this has had a positive response from the children who are keen to show off their healthy snacks from home.

Mrs Glynn has applied for the silver award from healthy schools and we continue to work hard next year.

KS2 library

KS2 now has a newly decorated library that has been split into four zones. See below how the library has been split.

Quiet reading


Teaching area




Mr Belfield wrote to School Council to ask them for ideas on how they could raise money to buy new books. The children came up with lots of ideas but the most popular idea was to have a book donation day.

Lily, Joshua. C and Mrs Chetram met one afternoon to write a letter to parents/carers to tell them about a book donation day. This was a huge success and the School Council children are sorting through the books ready for September. A great big thank you to everyone who donated!

Welcome to Royton Hall School Council
Pupils vote every year for a new school council representative. Pupils are asked if they would like to apply for the position. They are then asked to give a short speech to peers to explain what qualities they have and why they want to be a representative for their class. Once the class have heard all applicants, the official ballot begins and children vote for the person they feel would do the best job.

What happens at a school council meeting?
The school council meet once every half term with Mrs Collinson and Mr Butterworth,  where they discuss ideas on how to make the school an enjoyable place to learn and succeed. They sometimes have a set agenda or bring suggestions from their own class. The chair person leads the meetings, making sure all councillors have a voice and the agenda is met. The secretary takes minutes to record any suggestions and next steps for future projects.
School council meetings are very busy with projects such as; children's surveys, designing posters and writing letters to teachers. In the past they have even been to meet The Mayor of Oldham. They were given the opportunity to ask questions and experience what a real council do!

School Council board

Please find our school council information board outside the main office. This is where you can see when the next school council meetings are, track the progress on projects or even write down a suggestion.

Please see photos from the first official meeting held on Wednesday 15th November. The school council had received a letter from Mrs Glynn, who is the healthy schools coordinator, asking for their help. Great discussion was had and a survey will be coming soon for your opinion on how to make our school healthier.
