Grange Park Parliament

Grange Park School Parliament

At Grange Park, we are proud to have our own school parliament. This is an opportunity to hear the views of all pupils through a democratic process and learn how to act on ideas.

Our School Parliament focusses on:

  • Working and learning together
  • Learning about democracy
  • Learning how to play a positive role model in our community
  • Improving our school for everyone

Our School Council 2023/2024

A key part of the role of school parliament is to support pupils to understand that their opinion is of value, that their voices should be heard, and that their suggestions have merit. It helps them to learn how to communicate effectively and shows them how to develop skills that will remain with them throughout their lives.

Each class across the school has a class councillor who is responsible for collecting the views and issues raised within their classes. In Year 6 instead of councillors, each 'family' has two MPs (Members of Parliament). Every half term, MPs meet with the class councillors to receive feedback and ideas from across the school. These meetings are chaired by the MPs who also work to an agenda and take minutes.

MPs meet weekly with a Deputy Headteacher to work through an action plan and discuss any future initiatives.  The MPs meet with Tijen each half term to give feedback on any progress and to discuss ideas.
