St Peter's Catholic

Primary School

"Loved by Jesus, we love, we learn, we live and grow together for Him"




Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through Class and School Councils. Each year, elections are held and children engage in the democratic process by completing and returning ballot forms in a formal election procedure.  Please visit the 'School Council' section of our website for further information.  Children, parents and staff are given regular opportunities to give feedback on school life. This is done through pupil interviews, Parents' Forum, parent/staff/pupil questionnaires, individual meetings, pupil suggestion boxes and fortnightly School Council Meetings.


Throughout school, we show the value of democracy by:

  • having an elected school council, CAFOD club, liturgy leaders and elected house captains;
  • voting for class representatives to the council;
  • studying the development of sovereignty and government in Britain over time;
  • raising awareness of current affairs with the children at an age-appropriate level;
  • pupils having the opportunity to select charities we raise money for
