The school constantly seeks to find ways of developing the education and experiences of its pupils. The Pupil Parliament has an important voice in how the school is run by, for instance, developing the school’s code of conduct and rewards system. Ofsted report 2024

Pupil parliament was officially opened on 22nd September 2023 and our newly elected primary ministers were announced. 

We are looking forward to another productive year in office.

There was a special assembly this morning, which saw the various pupil parliament MP’s presenting the results of their term in office. A lot has been achieved during the past academic year and so the children should be very proud of themselves. Our Monarch (Chair of Governors Mr Mark Hart) then went on to dissolve parliament. We are looking forward to a re-election in the Autumn term and are excited to see what the new cabinet brings to the school next year!

Our Year 6 pupils will be our ministers and help us gather the children's views on various aspects of school life. Each class will have a representative who will join the Year 6 ministers in discussions about school improvement and be an active part of our school community. These representatives will be voted for by the children in their class. 


The Ministers will play an active role in school improvement and there will be four key focus areas for 2021/22:

1. Wellbeing

2. Community

3. Learning

4. Environment
