Our School Council


We’ve had a School Council at Compton for many years now. It’s yearly updated team and democracy has played a vital part in many parts of school life.

Over the years, the School Council have: interviewed potential new teachers including our Head Teacher, Mr Oakshott, handed out prizes for attendance at the end of every term, designed and ordered play equipment and artwork around the school, hosted visitors around the school and supported a range of staff members with daily activities.

A new council is voted in every autumn term by their classes and they have many opportunities through the year to bring issues/questions/requests from the children in their class forward to Mrs Keylock in the school council meetings. As requested by the children, every teacher is then sent the minutes of the meeting and further discussions are then had to try and address the points the children have raised.
