We want pupils to play an active and positive role in all aspects of school life. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to lead an initiative or hold a position of responsibility that impacts the school as a whole.
The children in Year 6 have the opportunity to apply to become cabinet members of our ‘Pupil Parliament’. Our Pupil Parliament help make decisions in the school and children who are senior ministers take on wider roles in the school linked to specific areas.
Roles that children can apply for are:
· Primary Minister
· Deputy Primary Minister
· Sports Minister
· Wellbeing Minister
· Environment Minister
· Health and Safety Minister
· Technology Minister
· Behaviour Minister
· Reading Minister
· Display Minister
Children from other year groups join the Pupil Parliament as MPs for their constituencies (classes) e.g. MP for Leopards.
Year 6 children also have the opportunity to be elected in as a Team Captain. Each of the School Teams (Newton, Hawking, Fleming and Edison) have two captains who are responsible for representing the team on Sports Day, encouraging and motivating younger pupils in their teams and helping organise school fund raising activities.
