Our Pupil Parliament
Enabling our children to have a voice in the school is very important to us and sharing ideas and opinions through the Parliament helps us to make decisions. Being a Member of Parliament is an important responsibility and one which children enjoy and develop their personal and social skills. The Pupil Parliament consists of School Councillors, Eco Leaders, Play Leaders, House Captains and a Head Boy and Head Girl. The Head Boy and Head Girl report to the Governing Board to ensure the pupil voice is heard at this level they are the Junior Leadership Team (JLT). All children are elected democratically and they learn that this is one of The British Values.
All sections of The Parliament meet twice each half term with minutes taken and published on-line and posted up on their display area in the school. Our Pupil Parliament is very active and members are elected yearly with two members chosen from all Year One and Year Two classes with Early Years children joining during the summer term for most areas.
