Sunnyside Primary Academy

Ambassadors and School Council


Children are at the heart of our Academy community. As an Academy, we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children.  We use Ambassadors and school council to ensure the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development of the Academy.

Class Representatives

Class Representatives from across the Academy are elected by their classes at the start of the school year. These children then have an extremely important job to do:

  • They are responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the school council.
  • They bring new ideas forward for how we can improve our Academy and local environment. They sometimes come to the meetings with ideas of fund raising for the Academy and for other local or national charities.
  • Once they have identified a priority, they will lead the initiative to enhance what we do as an Academy.

Ambassadors are responsible for leading some assemblies, running competitions  and meeting and greeting some visitors.  Our Ambassadors are expected to represent the school with pride.
