Pupil Voice


Eversley Parliament

 

What our school parliament does for our school?

‘Democracy is the form of government in which the free are rulers.’
(Aristotle)

Who are we?

Our school parliament is made up of 57 pupils who were elected to represent the views of all pupils and to work with the leadership team to improve our school.

What do we do?

The school held an election, where every child who wanted to be the Prime Minister wrote a speech and presented it to their class and school. The pupils of Eversley then voted using a secret ballot, who they feel would be the best candidate to help lead the school.

The pupils had to ensure that they would follow a set of principles:

  • to act with selflessness
  • to act with integrity
  • to act with objectivity
  • to be open to other suggestions and ideas
  • to act with honesty
  • to develop leadership in the school

 The Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Ministers for each key phase, then place the elected pupils from each class into a different cabinet. Below are the cabinets:

Prime Minister & Deputy

Environment Travel Cabinet

Teaching Learning Homework Cabinet

Health Well-Being and Sport Cabinet

Finance Fund Raising Cabinet

Enrichment Enterprise Cabinet

As effective members of the Eversley Parliament they listen to and represent the views of their class and school making sure they get things done!

We make a difference…

In the past few months some of the changes/events we have initiated are:

  • Charity events for charities such as Christmas Jumper Day, Children in Need and Food Bank
  • Remembrance – learning from the past so that the same mistakes are not made in the future
  • Feeding back to the leadership team on improvements needed in the school within each cabinet

Please see the schools’ weekly newsletter, which give regular updates from the school government and cabinets.

The Teaching & Learning Cabinet are pleased to share their first ever broadcast of Eversley Newsround.
