Park End Parliament

Park End Primary School Parliament

We have a pupil elected Parliament, which is led by a Prime Minister and a Deputy Prime Minister. They are elected by their class peers and are involved in making our school a better place. The election of the members reflects our British electoral system and demonstrates democracy in action. Candidates share qualities of leadership, pupils consider characteristics important for an elected representative and pupils vote in secret, using ballot boxes. Parliament meet up regularly to discuss issues raised by different classes. Pupils across the school use their voice to share ideas and concerns with the members of parliament. This forms the basis of further discussion and important decision making. Parliament provide feedback to the whole school and they have made their presence known to the school governors. We hope through embedding pupil voice and parliament, we will create a better understanding of living in a democratic society.

 

 

Parliament members are encouraged to discuss how established rules work in our school and their importance, in order for our school to run successfully as a learning environment. They are also encouraged to debate matters when there is a disagreement and to negotiate the best outcome for the majority of pupils. The minutes are available online and the ministers are in the process of creating the Park End Parliament blog. Any concerns that children have, are raised at Parliament so that pupil’s voices are heard and valued. The Parliament is committed to making Park End Primary School a happy, fun and safe learning environment for all children.
