School Council

At Aston Lodge, our student council is democratically voted for at the start of every academic year. The process is taken very seriously; pupils will write a letter of application, prepare a speech and a manifesto for their peers. The student council are elected based on their superb qualities to represent their class and the whole school community.

At Aston Lodge Primary School we keep the children at the heart of everything that we do and value the opinion of our pupils. Pupil’s are encouraged to share their ideas and be involved in the decision making in school.
