School Council

At Youlgrave All Saints' Primary School we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in School Council meetings.  The council is in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them. Through School Council all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve all of their classmates in reaching a democratic solution.


Our School Council also take an active part in fundraising, they are responsible for selling items at break times, for example during The Poppy Appeal.
