Pupil Parliament is made up of 48 children throughout the school. Each class has a Member of Parliament (MP) and a Vice Member of Parliament (VMP).These children have applied for the important job of being a Member of Parliament (MP). Pupil Parliament is a way for us to ensure that our children have a genuine ‘voice’ that improves provision or facilities in the school. The Pupil Parliament works hard to be a voice for all children and to ensure their opinions are listened to, having the opportunity to influence decision making in the school.
The Pupil Parliament meets regularly and represent ideas from their class as well as taking part in projects to improve different aspects of school life. After every meeting, there is an opportunity for the class pupil parliament members to feedback to their classes and in turn, gain their peers’ views and responses to share at their next meeting. Miss Ring facilitates Pupil Parliament meetings, encouraging the children to take responsibility and ownership over their important role in Knaphill life.
