School Parliament

School Parliament Week 12th - 16th November 2018


Last week we celebrated as a school, school parliament week. It was based around votes for women as it has been 100 years since women were allowed to vote. 


School Parliament helped lead the week by taking packs of work and activities around classes and decorating the main entrance and hall of the school with bright posters and bunting in the colours of the Suffragettes. The Prime Minister Cody in year 6 wore a ‘vote for women’ sachet around school to make other children aware.

Different year groups carried out various activities such as debating, campaigning, learning about democracy and designing ‘vote 100’ posters for the school competition. 


Overall it was an enjoyable week had by all, well done school parliament.

Media and Sports Ministers

School Parliament 2018/19


We are very proud of our school Parliament and the hard work and commitment that they show in making our school a better place.


Each week the children have a weekly meeting, reviewing any ideas past onto them by class peers and choosing which ones they would like to act upon or put into motion.

Last term year 6 parliament members gave a speech to become the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, then the rest of the parliament voted. Cody became the Prime Minister and Jayden the Deputy. The rest of the parliament members applied for the other ministerial roles such as Economy, Media and Sports, International Equality, Justice and Curriculum Ministers.

Last term children were becoming familiar with the Ministerial role that they had been designated. This term the children are beginning to fulfil these roles. They carry out weekly, fortnightly or monthly duties and then report back any findings or problems. They are also arranging ideas and events to raise money for the schools partnered charity.
