The School Council 2018-2019


These are some of the comments the school council have said about our school.


Ravensfield Primary school is a happy and fun place to be. We think that it is a brilliant place to learn.


The lessons are enjoyable and teachers make it exciting for us to learn. The lessons are fun and we are always learning something new. We love I.C.T as we get to use the computers. Maths is another great subject that we love to learn.


Teachers at Ravensfield are kind, fair and helpful and are always coming to school with a smile. They expect us to try hard and produce lovely pieces of work. The teachers are always careful to make sure that everyone gets a turn to speak. Our caretaker makes sure that our school is clean and a pleasant place to be.


We love our playtimes because we have a wide open space to move around. As well as that we have lots of brilliant play equipment. We can also buy healthy and nutritious snacks that are sold at our tuck-shop.


The school council represents all the children in our school to make sure that everyone is heard. We tell the teachers what we need to learn better so that we can get a good education. 


Welcome to Ravensfield!




The school council have meetings on most Mondays. This is a time when we come together to discuss any issues, suggestions we have been given for the school. Since coming back in September the school council have had their new elections, where they had to fill in a manifesto telling their class why they wanted to represent their class.

 The first half term we have covered why it is important to walk to school and they keep a record who walks in their class and those children receive a badge each month. We have introduced a suggestion box for each key stage where any child in the school can put ideas in the box for the school council to discuss. We gave out  a reading survey for each class to complete for Mrs Allford.

They have run the whole school Harvest Festival where they spoke about how important food banks have become.

Don't Park Here!



The school council have been asked to design leaflets and fliers that can be given out to parents/carers who park near or outside school.


We want people to understand by 'Stopping here could endanger a child's life'. Parking a little distance away from the school and walking the last part of the journey with children helps them arrive at school fresh.



Mr Andrew Gwynne's visit to the school


On Friday 6th November we had a visit by the local Member of Parliament, Mr Andrew Gwynne. Mr Gwynne came to school as part of National School Meals Week.

As he was in school the school council interviewed him for nearly 45 minutes asking him many probing questions about his job. Here are a selection of the questions the school council  asked on behalf of their classes.


What's the worst problem you have come across?

Why does the government keep changing the curriculum?

On a typical day what do you actually do?

What does an MP do?

How can I become an MP when I'm older?

Is the Prime Minister nice or mean?

Do you like it around Dukinfield?

Where does all the money come from?

When you first became an MP what was your main fear?
