Pupil Parliament Meeting

UKParliamentWeek_LogoPupil Parliament Week

Meeting: 16.11.18

 

  1. The new Pupil Parliament met today to discuss the suggestions from the Pupil Parliament box.
  2. They decided to hold a debate on the theme of Keeping People Safe. The Parliament would like to know how we keep safe in school.
  • Label fences to prevent children from climbing over them. Signs are already in place, but the Pupil Parliament will check them.
  • Football games should be separated by class to prevent fights. There is a timetable. Some members felt that it was good to keep Owls and Badgers apart, others that by playing together there would be harmony. Which pitch would be best? If both pitches were used for football, then where will the rest of the school play? Moving goal posts to either pitch rather than the tyres? Mrs Parr explained about the planned painting to create a football stadium backdrop.
  • Check gaps in the field fence to prevent children climbing through onto the field. Or staff car park? Mrs Parr will look at these gaps and report back to the Pupil Parliament.
  1. The Pupil Parliament will provide certificates to thank the children who had made the suggestions.
  2. Next meeting: Football.

Meeting: 02.11.18

  2. The Pupil Parliament discussed the upcoming Parliament Week (commences Monday 12 November). They decided to hold a debate on the theme of Keeping People Safe. The Parliament would like to know how do we keep safe? A debate is a way to express their opinion. This will be introduced to the school on Monday.
  3. Next meeting: Results from the Suggestion Box to be debated.

Meeting: 13.06.18

  1. The Learning Council are going to create a Perfect Presenter and Most Improved Award for each class. The Most Improved will be presented each half term. The Learning Council are going to produce the certificates for the class teachers. The aspiration is that the certificate will motivate them all to work as hard as they can.

  3. Next meeting: Impact of the Playground Monitors.

  1. There is an improvement on the laptops being charged.
  2. The Learning Council are going to create a Perfect Presenter and Most Improved Award for each class.

They will be chosen as Playground Monitor for a week (names out of a hat). They will go to the class teacher on duty if there are any issues. Poor behaviour is not acceptable. They can help children who look on their own and hurt. For Y5 and Y6. Important that everybody has a chance to be a Monitor if they want to. Still to have fun and play.
  4. Next meeting: Running in the corridors – the next stage.

7. Next meeting: Running in the corridors – the next stage.
