School Council and Eco Team
Christ the King School Council
Christ the King Catholic Primary School Council is a group of elected representatives. There are two representatives elected from each class, from Year 2 – 6. The Council meets regularly to discuss topics that are important to our school, the wider community and worldwide issues.
School Council meetings can be called if a councillor or their class has urgent matters to consider.
When important decisions about life and work at school are being made, School Councillors will be consulted by Staff and Governors, asked to share children’s opinions and provide a ‘pupil voice’.

School Councillors represent Christ the King School regularly at ‘Liverpool Schools’ Parliament’ sittings, held at Liverpool Town Hall. They share the opinions of C.T.K. school community, record the views of other schools attending and share the key points raised at Liverpool School’s Parliament sittings with the whole school.
School Council has worked with other School Councils or Action-Teams to help organise generous donations of food, from Christ the King School children and parents to South Liverpool Foodbank.
Everyone in our school community is responsible for keeping our school eco-friendly by:
- Keeping our school litter free and tidy
- Recycling more paper, card and fruit waste
- Being more energy efficient, by turning off unused electrical equipment and lights
- Working in Forest School to create habitats and wildlife to thrive.
Eco Team members include School Councillors who encourage children and adults to keep our school eco-friendly. Anyone can become a member of Eco Team if they care about our environment and come to take part in meetings.
Eco Team organise ‘litter picking sessions’ and take part in them. Eco Team representatives take time to check our school building is energy efficient and reward classes who are. They also consult with Mr Smith (Christ the King School Site Manager) get his opinion on how eco-friendly our school is.
