Council Crew

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives all  children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. Uphill Primary School believes that everybody should have a voice and a say. 


In September 2015, we renamed school council - 'Council Crew' as together we are all crew members.

There are 15 council crew teams led by Year 6 pupils. Each week the Year 6’s meet, prior to the council crew meetings,

to discuss the next agenda item ready to share with their crew. 

Pupils are actively involved with the decision making process in our school and contributes

to the school’s charter which includes the school community.
