School Council is a highly valued part of Thrumpton Primary School. The children on our school council are selected by the pupils for the pupils.
We have a valued team of 12 pupils from Year 1 through to Year 6. They are responsible for many decisions that are made in school. Recently they have been directly involved in decisions made regarding our rewards system in school and our school teams.
We truly value our pupils’ opinions and the school council is our ‘pupil voice’.
School Council 2015- 2016 SUCCESSES!
  • We now have referees trained to run football at playtimes. 
  • Children thought that the Top Scorers on Mathletics should be rewarded. A Top 10 weekly league has been started. Anybody in the top 10 at the end of the school year will be awarded a prize.
  • Children wanted more team events in school. The following events were organised last academic year: Balloon release, Art Competition, Parent quiz, Rounders game, Football tournament and Sports Day.
  • Children felt that football at playtimes needed to improve. Referees are going to be trained to take charge of football at playtimes. Everybody playing football at playtimes must sign and follow the 'Football At Playtime Contract'.
  • Children felt that we needed more school team events in school. The school teams have been reorganised. Staff have been assigned to teams and more team events are planned for the year.
  • Children felt that children who are always good should be recognised. Children who are always 'on green' will be rewarded with special treat afternoons and anybody who has remained 'on green' all year will go on a special trip!
  • Children asked for the fence around our school garden to be removed so that they could see what was growing. Mrs Keeling & Mr Peel worked very hard to improve our school garden and the fence has been moved back to open up the garden.
  • Children asked for markings on the field. The field has now been marked with lanes for sports day, a rounders pitch and football pitch.
