Children in Year 6 are chosen for their personal, social and or academic attitude and achievements to represent Knowsley Village School on behalf of the Headteacher. This role involves meeting parents, visitors and Governors and helping Mrs Barlow too with the school vision, values and ethos.

We have a very strong school council made up of children from Year 1 to year 6. The children meet monthly, discuss school improvement from their perspective, suggest ideas and carry out projects. The school council is supported by our KS1 Leader and a Governor. Our student election week takes place in the Autumn term.
