The School Council
The School Council is a forum for young people to communicate and generate ideas that represent Thomas Tallis School’s community ethos.
Student voice is important because it allows us to feed back our opinions about the way our school is run. We have been involved in interviewing our Head, Heads of Year, designing our school uniform and sharing ideas for the design of our state of the art school building. It is fun, because different year groups work together to share our experiences and ideas for the future.
Our students have the opportunity to offer ideas and feedback through their tutor groups. Every Friday during am registration, students are asked their opinions, views and ideas on a range of topics and questions that are relevant to them and their school lives. Tutor representatives also attend Year Council meetings where they bring their group's ideas, questions or issues. Two elected year representatives feed this information to the School Council via minute sharing and verbal discussions.
School Council meetings take place on Friday Week B in Room 1.3.34. During meetings the students are given the responsibility of practically problem-solving issues on behalf of the school community.
