Learning through experience and adventure

School Council


Thomlinson Junior has a School Council – they are a group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and improve their school.


Within each class there is also a Class Council, where the children in each class discuss and share ideas together that they would like to see happen in school, with suggestions on how to improve their school.  Ideas here are then taken to the main School Council, where they are discussed further.
