What does the Highfield School Council do?

A School Council helps to ensure that pupils have:

  • A safe, happy, fair learning environment
  • A forum to voice their concerns and act upon them
  • A structured opportunity to learn problem-solving skills
  • An opportunity to take an active part in the   management of the school
  • Experience of democratic processes

The School Council makes decisions, after consulting with their peers, about changes at Highfield.

Our School Council gets involved with whole school decision making.  The students are a key part of interviews and sit on a panel for more senior posts at Highfield.

Our School Council also has representatives who help to oversee the mental health and wellbeing of students as well as other concerns such as the environment and community work.  This branch of the School Council is called Mighty Minds.

We have representatives from different departments of the school who come together to share ideas and put them into action!

Our school council works in collaboration with our friends and parents group Supporters of Highfield Littleport Academy to raise funds to help make our school even better.

We also have fundraising events for major charities such as Children in Need, Comic Relief, Jeans for Genes and many more.

Currently we are raising funds to make our outdoor area more fun!  We would like lots of new equipment and things to climb on so this is our fundraising goal for this year.

We would like to raise funds for an outside climbing frame, a great way to keep fit!

We recently raised funds for some goal posts, take a look!
