Pupil Leadership



Welcome to the Heyes Lane School Council


At Heyes Lane, every class in Year 2 through to Year 6 have a School Council representative. We hold regular meetings to discuss ways in which we can improve our school. We also come up with ideas for raising money for charity and for the school and often act as the judging panel for school competitions.

The School Council members will regularly meet to discuss the views and ideas of pupils at Heyes Lane. These discussions are then fed back to the rest of school through this website page, classroom discussions, assemblies and the School Council noticeboard which is situated by our school library.

Mr Waldeck also shares many of the issues raised with the teachers in staff meetings.   If you are a child who goes to Heyes Lane, don’t forget that you can put forward your suggestions about how to improve our school in a number of ways:-

  • Speak to a School Council representative and they will jot your comments down in their ‘Council Comments’ log book which they will then take to the next meeting.
  • You can also write down your idea on a slip of paper and post it into your class ‘Class Comments’ box. Your School Council representative will then bring this to the next meeting.

Welcome to Eco Council

Here at Heyes Lane, children ranging from Year 1 to Year 6 can apply to become members of the Green Team and help to lead the school to a greener future. The children produce a manifesto highlighting the changes that they would like to see in our school and community. They work as a team to improve the collective actions of the school by discussing the methods we can put into place to be more eco-conscious. As well as this, they carry out tasks such as litter picking and classroom spot checks. The Green Team has an integral role in making Heyes Lane an eco-friendlier environment.

Welcome to Our Sports Leaders

At Heyes Lane, a small group of Year 6 children become Sports Leaders. The children are selected for the roles based on their contribution and participation in sport throughout their time in school. In addition to this, both their sporting values (such as respect, honesty and fairness) and their behaviour are considered. They work alongside coaches and teachers to improve PE and sport provision in school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assist with lunch-time clubs, organise competitions and our annual Sports Days. They have a huge role to play in the further development of PE and Sport at Heyes Lane.

Primary Leadership Academy

Four of our Year 5 children have been selected to represent Heyes Lane at the Trafford Primary Leadership Academy throughout this academic year. Jacob, Lucas, Imogen and Isla attended the launch of the Leadership Academy at Emirates Old Trafford on 16th November. Mrs Walker is excited about the year of leadership ahead. This opportunity gives these children the opportunity to develop their leadership and organisational skills in a sporting environment.
