School Council

Ridgefield Primary School has an active School Council that works on a range of exciting projects.


The school council meet fortnightly to look at issues raised in the school council postbox and plan for events such as Children in Need. Class Council takes place every other week so issues raised can be discussed in further detail and everyone has the opportunity to contribute. Findings from Class Council are fed back in School Council Assembly.


Who are our School Councillors?


Here are the School Council members for the year 2019-20.


How Does the Council Work?


Every September elections are held using the Cambridge City Council’s polling booths to elect a girl and boy representative for each class. The School Council then elect four children to be the executive.


The chairperson runs the meetings and tries to get everyone involved, assisted by the vice chairperson. The secretary writes about what happens in the meetings. The treasurer comes up with ideas how we can make money and looks after the accounts. There is also a link teacher who attends meetings but cannot vote on decisions.
