To help our children learn more about British Values and the role these play within our society, we have decided to establish our own school parliament to ensure that the voice of our children is always heard and valued. We want our children to understand the purpose of a parliament and that members of parliament are elected to serve their community and to be a force for change.
Children who are interested in standing as a member of parliament for their class should prepare a short speech which can be delivered to their classmates. To support the democratic process, children will then vote for their two representatives. Children should be reminded of the qualities that they are looking for in their members of parliament as this is a position of responsibility.
- Confident speaker
- Able to listen to the ideas of others
- A role model
- Able to ask questions
- Able to represent the views and ideas of their class
What is our School Parliament for?
The School Parliament is about:
- Working and learning together
- Learning about democracy
- Learning how to play a positive role model in our community
- Improving our school for everyone
The Junior Parliament will meet at least once per half term. Children will be given the agenda the week before the meeting to enable them to discuss items with their peers. Following the meeting, the parliamentarians will then report back to their class.
Meet our first Junior Parliamentarians
Our Junior Parliamentarians will be easily identifiable by their badge.
