School Council


Cyngor Yr Ysgol


We live the Gospel Message as we Worship, Learn and Play.


Pupil voice is highly regarded at St Philip Evans Primary School . One of the ways pupils can express their ideas is via our  School Council- Y Senedd.

The School Council meet weekly to share and discuss views.

Each class across the age ranges, starting from Year 2 through to Year 6, have two main representatives that have been elected by their peers.


The children are enthusiastic members and are keen to fulfil their role as a Councillor.


What do the children think about Y Senedd?

  • They think it is important that as a Councillor they represent everyone in school and carry forward ideas from their peers in class.
  • They believe they should be an outstanding role model to others in school.
  • All think it is important to raise money for school and other school supported charities.
  • School Council is fun and they enjoy coming to meetings to discuss important things.



Take a look at the PowerPoint below to see some of the work Y Senedd have been carrying out.

School Council


Cyngor Yr Ysgol


We live the Gospel Message as we Worship, Learn and Play.

We are the School Council for St Philip Evans Catholic Primary School. Our role is to make our school a friendlier, safer and happier environment, even though it is one of the best schools in Cardiff! We have decided we want to be different from, do more than, and stand out from previous School Councils.


At St Philip Evans, we believe it is important for pupils to take ownership of their learning and have greater roles in school decision-making. We provide many opportunities for children to  learn to be ethically, informed citizens of Wales and the World. Pupils have opportunities to play a role in making the decisions that affect them. We recognise that pupils have logical perspectives and opinions on issues that matter in the classroom, in the school and in the community. We give pupils an active role in influencing decisions about these issues as well as in the implementation of these decisions. 


Our School Council is made up of elected representatives of pupils from Years 2 through to Year 6.

The children elect a representative for each class by holding a ballot during the Autumn Term.

What we do :

 Improve Our curriculum because we are ambitious, capable learners.

Improve Our Wellbeing because we are healthy, confident contributors.

Improve Our responsibilities because we are ethically, informed citizens.
