School Council

New Waltham Academy School Council

Welcome to our school council page.


Our school council is made up of 2 members from each class. We were voted to become school councillors by our classmates.

We meet with the other school councillors once a week to discuss issues. These might be suggestions from our class about things they would like to happen, events we would like to do, our issues in our village.

Earlier this year the School Council created a new award - 'The True Believer’.  The weekly winner of this award is selected by the School Councillors and their teacher.  The trophy itself - as selected by the SC - stays in the classroom and shows how someone has shown belief in themselves that week.


Following discussions in classrooms and then later within the SC itself, they presented a number of ideas to Mrs Barber for NWA’s Senior Leadership to consider.  As a result the SC are now working on the creation of a weekly Tuck Shop which they will run themselves, and a termly School Council Newsletter.
