Groombridge St. Thomas CE Primary School

School Council

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.
