Exciting news for this year!
We are going to have our first School Parliament with Members of Parliament (MPs) and a Prime Minister (PM).
Over the Summer holidays, children were given the task to decide if they would like to be elected. They need to think of reasons why their fellow school friends should vote for them and speak to the whole school in a special assembly.
The whole school will then vote for a Prime Minister and MPs.
Once selected they will meet at least once per half term.
They are responsible for listening to and feeding back to a named teacher how they think the school could be improved.
Meet your pupil parliament 2023-24!
Our Pupil Parliament was formed to give our students a forum to speak and to ensure their voice is heard. The parliament is a democratically elected group of pupils who represent their peers and enable students to become partners in their own education, making a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos. We actively promote pupil independence and leadership opportunities with the aim of developing valuable leadership, communication and organisation skills. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of our school life.
Mr Fisher regularly meets with Pupil Parliament to discuss issues raised by classes and other important areas.
The members have different roles and responsibilities with our Prime Minister setting the agenda, leading the meetings and minuting all matters discussed.
All elected MPs are involved in the development of their curriculum area and they feedback pupils' views to the Deputy and Prime Minister.
Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school on a regular basis.
At NOS, pupils have an opportunity to suggest changes to school life. Being a Member of Parliament leaves pupils with a real understanding of corporate responsibility and to impact on their behaviour both in and out of school.
It is an important and useful way for our school to provide leadership and development opportunities for their pupils.
