Our Pupil Parliament Representatives 2019-2020

Our first Pupil Parliament meeting of the year

Our first RSA Pupil Parliament of the year. Today we held a debate and voted on ‘is it right the school holidays were shortened to 5 weeks with a 2 week October half term’? The representatives voted 46-11 in favour.

WE Day Nottingham

On November 5th, several school council members were fortunate to attend the first WE Day In Nottingham at the Royal Concert Hall. The day included hearing motivational speeches from Martin Luther King III, Mukadass Javaid, Isabelle Weal, Joe Dempsie and Emilio Estevez, to name just a few. The event promised to be informative, inspirational and thought provoking.

Pupil Parliament Assembly

Our Pupil Parliament representatives gave an interesting assembly to children from reception up to Year 2. They discussed their own, recent experience of taking part in the Rushcliffe Schools Alliance Pupil Parliament and spoke about the election taking place later this week.

Our new reception School Council representitives

Our new representitives from each of the reception classes put themselves forward to join our School Council and were each voted in by their peers. Well done girls.
The children in School Council were saddened to hear of the damage caused to trains at the Heritage Centre in Ruddington. They made and send a card from all the staff and pupils.

Children from Reception up to Year 2 have recently taken part in a voting event organised to encourage cross party debating.

The children, aged 4 to 7 years, are each part of three groups within the School; the School Council, the Mustard Seed Ambassadors and Eco Schools.

They were brought together and encouraged to debate several subjects, including whether the School should fundraise for a new water harvester or for soap making ingredients for a community in Uganda this year.

Each child was given the opportunity to discuss different options and give their opinions, before each voted for their preference.

The event aimed to give the children an insight into democracy and inspire the next generation of voters and comes following the School’s recent link with UK Parliament and its role within the Rushcliffe Schools Alliance Pupil Parliament.
