Pupil Parliament

The whole school elects our Pupil Parliament through a voting system. Pupils from Year 6 are required to complete an application to become a member of the Parliament. They produce a short video, speech or PowerPoint presentation, which is shown to the whole school before voting.

Committee members chair regular meetings with their class to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment as well as charity events.  Each sub-committee regularly meets with their leader to discuss issues raised by the class and other vital areas.  The committee members have different roles, and responsibilities with the Chair Persons set the agenda and lead the meetings.  Our Secretary minutes all our conferences and our Treasurer is responsible for the money that we raise and spend. The committee also consists of a minister for Teaching and Learning, Fundraising, Sport and Environment. The committee members work together on projects with different members of staff to get the best out of every project.  All the committees meet each half term as a full Pupil Parliament.  Pupils evaluate the progress that has been made and create next steps for the coming half-term.
