In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, St Peter’s School, York has implemented a strict visitor policy to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the whole school community. Following instructions from the government, the school site will be closed to pupils (apart from children of key workers) from the end of the day on Friday 20 March with no indication given of when that situation will change. We ask that all non-essential visitors also stay away from the school at this time. If your visit is essential, please read our visitor policy before you visit the school.

StPeters Nov18 26Our School Council is made up of 18 pupils (one from each class) plus a member of the senior leadership team. The Master is also a member and regularly attends meetings.

The Council meets every few weeks (or more often if needed) to discuss any issues raised by pupils or other staff. Discussions are fed back to pupils in Form time and in assembly.

Examples of decisions and discussion had by the Council include looking at purchasing more playground equipment (small items such as cricket bats or netballs) for both senior and junior playgrounds. The Council will make a suggestion to the School, come up with a list of possible items and organise a vote, via Forms, to see what the most popular items to purchase would be.

The aim is for pupils to have a voice. We want to listen to pupils’ opinions or suggestions on a variety of issues, tangible or otherwise.

Other recent activity has included looking at school dinners and deciding which meals were most popular, and organising a time capsule to be buried in the quiet garden.
