Maryland Primary Schools School Council

What is School Council?

Maryland Primary school’s School Council is a group of children who meet twice a month to discuss important aspects of school life. The School Council members are voted in at the start of the year. Each class elects members, one boy and one girl, to represent them. 

Why do we have a School Council at Maryland?

  • To improve the school according to the children’s point of view.
  • To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
  • To discuss and raise issues.

Who are our proud School Council members this year?

Class 5: Darim and Sophia
Class 6: Davion and Luize
Class 7: Ella and Cruz
Class 8: Kham Ahh’Ah Re and Milan
Class 9: Floyd and Maria
Class 10: Chantelle and Julian
Class 11: Abdul-Samad and Latifa
Class 12: Viktor and Resha
Class 13: Olivia and Matthew
Class 14: Roshni and Joshua

Similar to the UK Government set-up, in addition to their School Council rep duties, elected children have taken on additional roles.  These roles will help implement the British Values in our school.

Maryland Primary Schools Monitors

Who are Maryland Primary Schools Monitors?

In Year 6 we like to encourage our children to take on different areas of responsibility and set a good example to the rest of the school. We also believe this teaches our Year 6 children how to work as part of a team, help others and they develop empathy skills whilst working with younger children in school. Each child is assigned a different role which they take ownership of and fulfill to the best of their ability.  

Why are Monitors so important for Maryland?

Maryland’s monitors play a key role in helping to maintain good order around the school and to help implement and promote the schools ethos.

Some of the many important roles which our Monitors undertake are listed below:

  • Library Monitors
  • Office Monitors
  • Welfare and Learning Monitors
  • Laptop Monitors
  • Dining Hall Monitors
  • Class Monitors
  • Infant and Junior Hall Monitors
  • Certificate Monitors

 Head Boy and Head Girl

Maryland’s Head Boy and Head Girl are responsible for promoting and representing the school by being a role model, setting an example of a respectable citizen and good ambassador for other children. We have also appointed a Deputy Head Boy and Girl who help out on the day-to-day duties of Head Boy and Girl, as well as looking after the school and creating a link between teachers and children. Our Head Boy and Head Girl and the two Deputy Heads have undergone a rigorous selection process.  This included completing nomination forms signed by two members of staff, delivering their speech at Maryland’s hustings event, publicizing through posters and then going through an election process in the school.  We have tried to replicate the Government election process.

Some of the many important duties our Head boy, Head Girl and our two Deputies undertake are listed below:

  • To be internal and external ambassadors for the school.
  • To act as positive role models for all students at Maryland.
  • To greet and show important visitors around Maryland.
  • To organise and plan regular meetings with the School Council and ensure that decisions are carried out.
  • To take part in charity and fundraising events for the school.
  • To make speeches promoting the school.
  • To organise events which promote British Values within the school.
  • To insure the smooth running of every assembly given at Maryland.
