Meet our 2017 - 2018 members
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.
Marie Curie Coffee Afternoon
On Friday 1st December from 2pm to 3.25pm we are organising a Coffee Afternoon fundraising for Marie Curie Cancer Care. All parents, grandparents, friends and family welcome to our school hall to enjoy cake, a cup of tea and a chat. This is following on from our successful coffee afternoon last year where we raised £367 for MacMillan Cancer.
We hope to see as many of you as possible.
School Council have provided new playground equipment for all children to play with at break and lunch times. Last year we asked the children what types of activities and equipment they would like to have to improve their lunchtimes. We used money raised last year from the Anti Bullying Wear Blue Mufti day and Sainsbury's Sports Vouchers to buy the new equipment. This is enabling children to be more active at playtimes and lunchtimes too.
Here are a few photographs showing the children enjoying playing with the equipment we have proudly provided.

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.

Don't hurt your head, wear a helmet instead!
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.
School Council organised another excellent Talent Show.
TCP's Got Talent 2017 was a big success, with lots of KS2 children being brave and performing their excellent talents from dancing, singing, jokes to drumming.
This years winners were a dance crew of Year 6 girls, performing to Little Mix's DNA, well done girls. In 2nd place was Ava and Sarah performing on their brass instruments. In 3rd place was Isabelle dancing solo. Well done to our 2 brilliant presenters and our guest judges 'Little Mix!'.
Thank you to all parents and grandparents who came to support the children.
