Our School Parliament
Our School Parliament is formed each September, when Year 6 form a number of political parties. Each party presents their values and ideas in a special Collective Worship and every child in the school takes part in casting their vote within authentic, private booths.
Each party member is given a specific role that they are responsible for developing.
The School Parliament widens its horizons by employing further MP’s. Each class is able to nominate a candidate to join 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 first School Parliament in September 2019, they 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.
