TCP has a successful School Council. Children elect candidates from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 by secret ballot. Successful candidates then hold the office of Councillor for one year.
The School Council meets each Thursday and keeps the children informed about issues they have been discussing on a regular basis.
Over the last few years the School Council have been introducing healthy snacks at break time; have adopted a pet snow leopard; bought new playground equipment; introduced ways of recognising good lunchtime behaviour; raised money for charity; supported the Christmas Fair and have also organised an infamous yearly talent show.
All the pupils get a say on what we do. They put suggestions in our suggestion box. We then either discuss their ideas or invite them to our meeting. Each year we organise fundraising events to help us achieve our goals.

We have been busy planning and organising our Coffee Afternoon for the past few weeks and on Thursday 10th November we enjoyed a really successful afternoon.
Thank you to everybody who baked or donated cakes and helped us make this event so brilliant.
We judged the class cakes in 'TCP's Bake Off!' Our 'Star Bakers' were:
Viola class and their delicious Jam tarts.
Bassoons and their yummy Flapjack.
Xylophones and their Lemon drizzle cake.
An extra special thank you to Mrs Potter for baking 3 cakes which the winning classes enjoyed as their prizes. Also to Mrs Tomes who made a brilliant cake that we raffled to raise extra money for this great charity.
The total figure raised was a fantastic £367!
A BIG thank you everybody!

At TCP, we want to make sure you are all safe. Mr Upton asked School Council to design a slogan and a poster to encourage children to always wear a helmet when they ride their bikes. Every class will display the poster and we hope our slogan will help remind children to wear their helmets and keep safe! Well done to Ruby, who came up with our brilliant slogan.

Reindeer food and Snowman soup
We were very busy making Reindeer food and Snowman soup to sell at our Christmas Fayre.
We enjoyed selling this on our stall and we made £90.
We all enjoyed a fantastic day on Friday 24th March. We raised over £230 just for wearing red clothes to school. We sold 239 red noses and raised a further £239.
We organised a joke writing competition and enjoyed lots of jokes being told in assembly. Mr Upton and 2 School Council members judged and chose the winning jokes. The winners each won a joke book.
We are proud of the money we raised for Comic Relief and the difference our money can make to lots of people's lives.
Thank you to everybody who bought a red nose and made a donation.
We are also currently working on improving children's experiences at lunchtimes. We are hoping to provide some new play ground equipment and offer some new and exciting lunchtime clubs. We are liaising with the welfare staff and have carried out a pupil questionnaire to find out what children like, dislike and want they would like to have at lunchtimes.
