Our Pupil Parliament at Watton at Stone school is a forum through which all the children within the school are given a voice. Pupil Parliament promotes pupil leadership opportunities and develops valuable communication and organisational skills.
All children, from Y1 to Y6, are involved in mixed year group meetings that take place at least each half term. At the meetings the children are able to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environments.
The children organise their own meetings, decide on the agenda and share new ideas. The meetings are lead by Y6 children, who are developing their leadership skills.
Pupil Parliament benefits the entire 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.
Our Pupil Parliament give the children the opportunity to explore areas such as:
Do you feel safe at school?
How do you feel about Good to be Green ?
What are some fun ways to raise money for the school?
How can we be an Eco friendly school?
