Pupil Parliament

At St Paul's Catholic Primary School we believe that children and young people need to be active participants in their own education and to feel that their opinions will be heard.


Pupil Parliament actively promotes pupil voice within Parliament itself and across the school for all pupils. Every class has a class suggestion box. This gives opportunity for all pupils to play an active positive role in decisions affecting them, as their ideas on topics/issues are heard and brought forward to Parliament for discussion and debate and feedback is then discussed with the Senior Leadership Team.


Pupil Parliament representatives will work with specialist area pupil leadership groups to develop their leadership skills, enabling the pupils to develop valuable communication, co-operation, organisational and debating skills, as well as developing a sense of responsibility. It also builds pupils confidence and self-esteem.


Pupils involved in our Pupil Parliament and specialist pupil leadership groups meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment. As part of their responsibilities, the Parliament lead and record minutes for their own meetings, decide on an agenda, share new ideas, lead projects agreed by the Senior Leadership Team and vote on a number of school-related issues. Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school and feed directly into whole school actions.
