Pupil Parliament and Leadership
We have a number of opportunities for our children to demonstrate pupil leadership including Play Leaders, Peer Mediators and our Pupil Parliament.
Our Pupil Parliament had the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament where they toured the building, visited the House of Commons, House of Lords and the Queen's Chambers. They then took part in a debating workshop where they presented their cases for an early school finish. Surprisingly (?) the children voted for a longer school day. Well, we were not surprised at all!
