Welcome to our Pupil Parliament Page
Democracy is alive within our school and as the Pupil Parliament, we are living proof of this. Everyone has the opportunity to have their voices heard through the Pupil Parliament. The election of the class MPPs (Members of Pupil Parliament) has been carried out in a democratic manner. Each class was provided with the opportunity to apply for positions within our Pupil Parliament, with applications being read by Mrs. Orchard and Mr. Paley.
We now have Pupil Parliament members in lots of exciting roles across their curriculum. It is the role of the Ministers to work alongside staff and subject leads, providing the voice of the child.
Meetings will be held on a regular basis with a member of our staff, where children will have an opportunity to communicate their thoughts and ideas. They take whole school issues and ideas from their own class councils and feed them into the Pupil Parliament. They also share ideas and decisions from Pupil Parliament with their class. Decisions made within Pupil Parliament can, and do, have a real impact on the rest of the school.
Pupil Parliament representatives need to have the following personal qualities:
- Friendly and approachable
- Good at listening to everyone
- Able to remember things
- Honest and sensible
These are the things the Pupil Parliament representatives need to do:
- Attend meetings, turn up on time and be interested
- Listen to the views and opinions of the class and bring them to the meeting.
- Report everyone’s ideas and opinions, even if they are not your own
- Bring ideas to the meeting that will make the school a better place to be
- Feedback information to your class – ask your teacher for a time to do this
- Collect views of pupils from the playground and class
We will nominate our Pupil Parliament as part of our Democracy Day. This group will oversee all aspects of school life.
