Pupil Parliament

Our Pupil Parliament is made up of two elected representatives from each year group (F2 to Y6). For the year 2017-18 our reps are:

Jack, Devon, Amber, Christopher, James, Iris, Gregor, Amelia, Isaac, Oliver, Joseph, Henry, Esmae and Abigail.

Each child wears a green jumper or cardigan so they are easily recognisable around school. 

What is Pupil Parliament?

Pupil Parliament is group of children who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

Our Pupil Parliament also includes Anti-bullying ambassadors.

 

What does the Pupil Parliament do?

Pupil Parliament does a number of things:

  • They meet - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
  • Members of the Pupil Parliament will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.

 

What jobs are there?

There are several jobs or roles within the Pupil Parliament. The chair person, secretary and treasurer have already been announced. 

 

What makes our Pupil Parliament Good?

A good Pupil Parliament is one that represents the views of all children and gets things done.

Many schools have pupil councils, but they are not all successful. These are some things that make a Pupil Parliament effective:

  • Regular meetings
  • Class feedback
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
  • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific events or issues
  • A bank account or budget (however small)
  • Annual evaluations

  

Does the Pupil Parliament get anything done?

Yes! We have lots of good ideas we are going to look at this year. The first one is to decide on which charities we would like to support this year.
