What our school parliament do for our school?
‘Democracy is the form of government in which the free are rulers.’
Who are we?
Our school parliament is made up of 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
Finance & Enterprise
Health, Well-Being & Sport
Teaching, Learning & Enrichment
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!
