We actively promote pupil leadership opportunities, enabling your child to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills.

We believe that providing these key roles of responsibility are paramount to their development and learning experience.

Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.

Our successful Pupil Parliament is a well respected body within the school and consists of 20 pupils between Years 2 and 6. Children involved in our Pupil Parliament meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment. As part of their responsibilities, the team organise their own meetings, decide on an agenda, share new ideas and vote on a number of school-related issues.  Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school through their own channel, MPPTV

Pupils have recently taken decisions on how to reward the Stars of the Week, successfully led a fundraising project for Comic Relief which raised nearly £1000, interviewed prospective members of staff and are currently raising money to help children who lead difficult lives in India.  Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.

In return for their contribution throughout the year, and to support them with developing skills for their role, members of Pupil Parliament and our House and Vice Captains are invited to visit the Houses of Parliament each year to gain an insight into politics and the parliament.
