Welcome to the
Pupils' Parliament

Welcome to the 2021-2022 Pupils' Parliament, the home of leadership, communication and debate. 

Who are we and what do we do?

Pupil Parliament promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences.  Pupil Parliament benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf. 


Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard. Miss Fairbrother runs the Pupil Parliament meetings twice every half term. 


What are the aims of pupil parliament?

  • Represent all pupils and includes a fair representation of the school
  • Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views
  • Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views
  • Action decisions that have been made or explain why they can’t happen


How can I get elected?

Anyone in the Junior School can apply for a position in parliament at the start of the academic year.  Each member is voted for by their classroom peers after a short speech explaining why they should be elected. The elected members will then remain in office throughout the school year. In September a new government is formed.
