Our School Council plays an integral role at Tidbury Green School. As one of our British Values is democracy, we feel it is very important that our pupils get a say in matters affecting their school. From Reception – Year 6, one child is democratically elected by their class and serves on the School Council for the academic year.
Meet our School Council for 2020-2021
(Currently under construction!)
Our current priority for 2020-21 is to support those less fortunate than ourselves within our local community, particularly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working with Helping Hands, who deliver food and toiletries to individuals and families in the borough. This photo shows how much we were able to collect after just one week!
