Our School Parliament
Our School Parliament was established in September 2019, when Year 6 formed a number of political parties. Each party presented their values and ideas in a special Collective Worship and every child in the school took part in casting their vote within authentic, private booths.
‘Perfect People’ was elected to lead the School Parliament and each party member was given a specific role that they would be responsible for developing.
The School Parliament widened its horizons by employing further MP’s. Each class was able to nominate a candidate to join Perfect People and represent the school. It is the responsibility of the class MP’s to raise any concerns, ideas or important events, which have been highlighted by their peers, and bring these to parliament meetings to be discussed and resolved.
Since forming, the School Parliament have made tremendous progress in launching recycling initiatives. Each class now has its very own recycling box to ensure that no paper is wasted. Signs have appeared around the school and within each classroom as a reminder to staff that they must only print off essential paperwork to further promote the ‘zero waste movement’.
On Thursday 6th February 2020, the School Parliament – accompanied by Mrs Hick – visited the local recycling plant to increase their knowledge and understanding of how recycling works, with a view to implementing further improvements at Stanley St Peter’s Primary School.
As well as recycling, the school MP’s have achieved a number of changes:
Despite an amazing start for the School Parliament, the MP’s show no signs of slowing down and have already gathered a list of actions to be completed in the near future:
The School Parliament would like to thank all the children, staff and parents who have supported their efforts so far and look forward to making more positive changes in the future!
