We are extremely proud of all the dedication and effort the children have put in for such an important cause.

HappinessB4Hate Workshops

On Tuesday 6th June 2023, the school council were joined by the Rotherham United Community Support team to deliver a number of workshops. From Y1 to Y6, the children had a great time and had the chance to have brilliant discussions around the important subject of hate crime. Thank you Rotherham United!


The School Council have been committed to spreading the word about their campaign HappinessB4Hate.

They have been presenting lessons about the campaign to their classes and introduced the Wickersley Northfield Primary Hate Crime Charter. They also met with Councillor Ellis and our Neighbourhood Coordinator Nicola to inform them about all the impressive work they are putting towards HappinessB4Hate.

Councillor Ellis commented: "We make a great team. You (the school council) have done all the hard work on this brilliant project, and I am glad that we have been able to help you."

The school council appreciate all the support they are receiving and are eager to continue with their quest.



The School Council have been very busy creating their campaign 'HappinessB4Hate'

"We would like to promote our campaign for preventing Hate Crime so that people feel safe and comfortable while learning. This campaign will help all people understand how serious hate crime can be and giving everyone a tool on how to deal with hate crime situations. It’s not just children who need to learn this it is adults (including family) as well. We are going to make sure everyone feels safe and welcome to school. We want everyone to feel happy and make sure everyone feels equal. We want pupils to know if they experience hate crime they can tell a trusted adult." -School Council


Competition Winners- We held a competition to design our slogan for our campaign HappinessB4Hate.

Congratulations to the winners: Lola and Kate

Celebrating our School Council 2019-2020

Below are a few pictures from last year's School Council. The children organised a school Christmas Jumper swap with the Eco Warriors; we recycled old Christmas jumpers and then sold them on a Christmas stall . They raised an amazing £610.94 for the Rotherham Hospice by taking part in the Mini Santa Dash! The School Council met with Miss Middleton and Miss Proctor to discuss the choice of equipment for the KS1 play area.

Great work School Council!
