Hobbs Hill Wood Primary School

Improving outcomes for all our pupils through high quality teaching and learning

School Council

Hobbs Hill Wood has a School Council made up of 16 members – two representatives per class in Year Three, one representative from each class in Year Four and Year Five and eight representatives from Year Six. Pupils can offer themselves for nomination at the start of the academic year and the other pupils in the class vote to elect their representative.


School Council is the voice of the children and the children’s opportunity to contribute to whole school improvement. The School Council representative attends regular meetings to discuss comments and ideas put forward by their peers. They also hold regular class council meetings to share what has been happening in school council and to put forward suggestions.

Tesco's Bags of Help

The School Association, along with the school made an application to Tesco's Bags of Help Community Grant scheme. We were successful and the school was awarded with £1000 to spend on new books for our EYFS/KS1 library, our KS2 library and our reading scheme.


On Tuesday 16th March 2021 Tesco presented School Council with the cheque. In addition, Tesco kindly donated breakfast cereal and fresh fruit for our Treetops Breakfast Club.


A big thank you to Tesco, the School Association and School Council.
