Your Pupil Parliament

Why Have a School Parliament?   There are lots of reasons...

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives.

Our parliament provides a meaningful way in which our pupils can voice their opinions

Within the school curriculum, one of the key areas making up our Beyond Expectation Curriculum Model is ‘’a climate of participation’ and a ‘culture of opportunity and ambition’ and our Parliament and Young Leader roles provide an excellent way in which to increase participation, teaching our children about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.


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.

What do we do?

Parliament members chair regular meetings with their class to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment as well as charity events. Miss Robinson regularly meets with Pupil Parliament to discuss issues raised by the class and other important areas. The committee members have different roles and responsibilities with our Prime Minister setting the agenda, leading the meetings and minuting all matters discussed (read our minutes on the link below). Ministers are involved in the development of their curriculum area and they feedback pupils' views to the curriculum leaders. Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school on a regular basis. 


At Archbishop Cranmer, 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 civic pride which continues 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.
