Our Pupil Parliament is structured much like the government as it is made up of different sub-committees. Each of these committees is designed to have a specific focus on improving Brooklands Primary School.
Pupil Parliament promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences. Pupil Parliament benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.
The aims of the Pupil Parliament:
Represent all pupils and includes a fair representation of 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.
Who can be a member of Pupil Parliament?
Anyone can apply for a position. Each member is voted for by their peers after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected.
What do we do?
The Pupil Parliament is supported by Mrs Armstrong. The children meet bi-weekly to discuss forthcoming actions and update actions completed.
