A caring Christian family, striving to achieve our best

Pupil Parliament

We also have an active Pupil Parliament at All Saints', a democratically, peer elected group of pupils representing each of our classes. The purpose of the Pupil Parliament is to provide a voice for all of our pupils , enabling all to have an active role in matters that affect their lives both in school and the wider community.

 

Pupil Parliament meetings are held on a fortnightly basis, with Mrs SC and Mrs Hargreaves. We also welcome our local police office to our meetings each term, to discuss community issues. Suggestion boxes are located in each classroom where all members of a class family can post thoughts, ideas or questions to be brought to Pupil Parliament meetings.  Children are encouraged to write down any suggestions that they think will improve school, or share concerns that they have which they feel Pupil Parliament can help to resolve. 

 

We have organised our Pupil Parliament in a slightly different format this current year, with elections taking place to vote in members of parliament and then a further election process taking place to vote in a prime minister. Our Pupil Parliament meet fortnightly and act as a pupil voice within school.

Our Pupil Parliament is  made up of representatives from each year group and every class, with every member being assigned a specific duty as 'minister of' a given area within school. Our local police officer, PC Paul Pountain, is also a member of our Pupil Parliament as the minister for transport and minister for crime! He joins us once per term to discuss issues we may have.
