Groombridge St. Thomas CE Primary School
Our School Council, which started in 2004, is democratically elected annually
from Years 3-6, with a boy and girl from each class. Children have a voice in the running of the school and special initiatives they wish to be involved in.
We want to ensure that all pupils have:
a safe, happy, healthy, active and fair learning environment
a place to voice concerns, worries and work out solutions
the opportunity to learn problem solving skills
an opportunity to take an active part in making decisions
an opportunity to experience a democratic process which expresses British values and respects others
a place to discuss behaviour/friendship problems or report bullying
responsibility for the school environment
an opportunity to plan and organise projects which will make a difference
the opportunity to speak, listen to others and debate issues
an opportunity to manage a budget
an opportunity to learn about roles, rights and responsibilities within the school and wider community.
A file with all of the minutes of our meetings is available in school.
