School Parliament (School Council)

School Parliament

The school encourages children to take responsibility for learning and some events.  We have developed our pupils to have a voice in school through our School Parliament (previously School Council), our prefect system and our head boy and head girl.

Our School Council has been appointed for 2016/17. You can see who has been elected from our Parliament notice board. They hold three meetings per half-term. At these meetings they decide:

  • which charities the school will support during the year
  • what the overall focus of each of the ministries
  • actions they would like to see happen as a result of the Pupil Surveys
  • evaluate which enterprise projects are funded for Enterprise Week
  • collect the views of children about the school

Meetings Timetable 2016/17

There are four Ministries that support the work of the Parliament:

- Ministry of Leadership (with Mr Metcalfe & Miss Morris)
