Belmore Primary Academy

Pupil Leadership Team

At Belmore we believe that children should be given more opportunities to prove themselves as being responsible role-models and have the chance to have their say about how the school is run.

To ensure all pupils have the chance to voice their opinions, we have a Pupil Council. Children from each year group run for councillor and are elected by their peers.

We’re very lucky to have such keen and enthusiastic children in our school.  Our representatives do a wonderful job, and we always look forward to working with all of them throughout the year.
