Pupil Council

At Old Basing Infant School we have an active Pupil Council consisting of members from classes in Year 1 and Year 2.  The aims of the Pupil Council are to give our children :


  • A chance to voice their opinions about school life
  • A chance to share their ideas on how to improve school life for everyone
  • The opportunity to be engaged in a democratic process


Each class elects two members for the council each term.  The councillors are responsible for attending the council meetings each half term, and reporting back to their class about the meeting. The councillors also have to bring issues to council from their classes, or take points for discussion back to the classes to find out what the children across the school think.


Some of the things that the children at Old Basing Infant School have, through the pupil council, had input on are :


  • Ways to improve the school grounds
  • Playtime activities
  • Sports Day
  • Which charities the school supports


Everyone involved with the pupil council takes their role very seriously and enjoys representing the views of their class at the meetings. They have a meeting every fortnight.


Old Basing Infant Pupil Councillors are;

Hare Class - Tiggy and Henry

Squirrel Class - Emily and Sully

Fox Class - Stela and Lucas

Barn Owl Class - Ethan and Adheen

Badger Class  - Wilf and Olivia

Otter Class - Danny and Charlotte
