Pupil Parliament

Pupil Parliament

Aims:

  • To democratically elect members for the Pupil Parliament to represent their peers
  • To ensure pupils feel heard by providing a mutually respectful platform to communicate their views
  • To promote democracy when making decisions about views put forward by children 
  • To take action on decisions that have been made and explain in a clear, fair manner those things that can’t happen

 

Introduction:

As a Catholic School, our Gospel Values underpin everything that we do, including ensuring that all children feel valued and respected in their individual views. Our Pupil Parliament, which was established at the end of 2016, offers pupil leadership opportunities, giving children the platform and responsibility to let their voice be heard, enabling them to take an active role in organising and debating key issues related to our school.

 

What is the Pupil Parliament?

Our Year 6 pupils wrote and shared their manifestos with the school and after another exciting election, we now have our new Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to lead our Pupil Parliament through 2019 to 2020. Remaining Year 6 pupils form the Cabinet and Years 1 to 5 have each elected two Members of Parliament to represent their interests in Parliament meetings.

 

Meetings will be held on a regular basis so children have the opportunity to put forward their thoughts and ideas, giving all pupils a chance to voice their opinions on ongoing projects, helping continuing to make our School a fantastic place to learn and play.

 

Upcoming Projects 

 

During our first meetings held by the Pupil Parliament this half term, MP’s put forward their ideas for projects they would like to see through and voted for one to take on next half term. Parliament members felt strongly that they would like to raise money for the school to buy new reading books and have begun to plan their first fundraising events! Watch this space…
