Pupil Parliament

Pupil Parliament 2023-2024


What is Pupil Parliament? 

Pupil Parliament gives all children an opportunity to be actively involved in the way that the school is run. Children can communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf. 


Who is part of Pupil Parliament?

At the start of each new school year we hold elections for our Pupil Parliament. The children are elected to the Pupil Parliament by their peers and the teachers. Each class, year 1-5, votes for one child from their class to be their Class Minister. Year 6 vote for two children per class. In the Summer term, the Reception classes vote for one child from each class to join the Pupil Parliament to make a total of 12 Ministers at the Infant School and 16 Ministers at the Junior School.


What are the Minister’s responsibilities?

Our Pupil Parliament has a Primary Minister and two Deputy Primary Ministers. All the Ministers work alongside our school subject leaders to develop our Curriculum. They take part in pupil voice questionnaires and learning walks around the school.


The Pupil Parliament are also responsible for leading projects in the school. This year our projects will be focused on:

Health and Wellbeing

Environment (Eco-friendly school, School Allotment and Garden)

Community (Inclusion and Diversity)


What are the aims of Pupil Parliament? 

  • Represent all children at the school.
  • Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views.
  • Feedback to pupils about what happened about their views.
  • Action decisions that have been made or explain why they can’t happen.
