About the Pupil Parliament

What are the aims of our Pupil Parliament?

To ensure pupil voice is implemented at Downshall Primary School.

To represent the voice of our pupils.

To allow pupils to be involved in decision making.

To allow pupils to make positive contribution to our school.

How were pupils selected?

Three nominations were submitted from each Year 5 and Year 6 class. These 18 individuals were asked to write a 100-word speech to deliver in assembly to pupils in Years 4-6. Once pupils heard the speech, they were asked to vote for their most preferred candidate from each year group. The six pupils with the most votes from Year 5 and 6 joined the team. The roles were then decided through discussion and voting. The Pupil Prime Minister and Deputy Pupil Prime Minister roles were decided through a further speech and voting.

What makes our Pupil Parliament effective?

The team is a reasonable size (12 members).

Pupils have been assigned to a department. This will allow them to focus on a key area.

Regular meetings with our supporting adult to allow us to discuss and implement change.
