At Childwall Abbey School, we understand it is very important for ALL students to have a voice and know that their views and opinions count.
Pupils in each class choose their class representative for the School Council. It is a voluntary role however every class must be included so that no one misses out.
Each councillor has to make sure that the views of all of the students in their class are shared with the Headteacher and Governors. They work hard to find ways of collecting the ideas and suggestions of the rest of the school by:
- having class discussions
- listening to the views of others
- preparing and giving out student questionnaires
Our School Council is supported by Mrs Piercy (Headteacher) and Mr Maloney (Pastoral Support). We meet in the School Library to talk about a variety of topics such as break and lunchtime activities, school lunches, sporting opportunities and curriculum. The aim is always to make our school an even better place to be.
Being a School Councillor is an interesting and valuable role. It is a great way of contributing to the life of the school and a good preparation for life after C.A.S.

School Council member speaks at Liverpool Schools’ Parliament
Jack Statham spoke at Liverpool Schools’ Parliament, in the Town Hall.
I want to make Liverpool right because we need to stop people throwing litter around. They need to learn to use the bins instead of throwing rubbish on the floor. I also think people need to be careful with drinking. Some people do get extremely drunk. We need to tell people that’s not cool or healthy. My other point is about school, I love school but I haven’t always loved it. Sometimes I have not wanted to go, but I have learnt to love school. I want to help more kids love school too. Also we need to spread the word on autism awareness. People don’t seem to know much about it. I want to change that; I want people not to be afraid of it. Finally ladies and gentlemen, I love where I live! If we all work together we can make a difference and keep Liverpool Great. Thank You.”
This is a wonderful speech delivered by Jack in year 6 to the Liverpool Schools’ Parliament.
Jack has some great ideas. We are all delighted that he loves school and we are very proud of him for representing us in such a mature and positive way.
Well done Jack!
