Buxton Junior School

Democracy in action

School Council

Each class elects their representatives on the school council. The council has regular meetings to discuss issues which the children have brought to their class representative. The children discuss issues such as playtime organisation, clubs and school resources. 


All the children elect Eco-Committee representatives from their class, and regular meetings are held. The Eco-Committee aim to educate the children about sustainability, as well as introduce ways of making Buxton Junior School a greener place, for instance through our recycling project. 

Sports Leaders

Pupils at Buxton Junior School also have the opportunity to vote for Sports Leaders. This is an important position in school and potential leaders need to be persuade and convince their peers that they are the right person for the job.

Circle Meetings

We hold termly Circle Meetings, where children from all year groups come together to discuss issues in school, such as playtimes, lunchtimes, extra-curricular activities, etc.
