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 boy, head girl and their deputies.

Our School Parliament has been elected/appointed for 2020/21. You can see who has been elected from our Parliament notice board and on the School Parliament Google Classroom.  

There are four Ministries that support the work of the Parliament:  They meet during dedicated Parliament weeks, one ministry per day, and during the pandemic this is socially distanced in the school hall and/or via video conference.  A school governor is linked to most ministries.

- Ministry of Leadership (with Miss Fleming & Miss Morris - Governor: Mrs Elphick (CoG))
