Pupil Parliament - 2020-21
Welcome to Pupil Parliament at St Gerard's Catholic Primary & Nursery School
Our successful Pupil Parliament is a well respected body within the school and consists of a mixture of pupils between Years 1 to Year 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 newsletter - 'The Parliament!'
Friendship Ministers - Year 1 - (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare)
- Ministers will also look out for children who appear to be lonely and make a note of it, then try to help them find someone to play with.
- Ministers will make a note of any children who are showing excellent values of friendship and kindness.
Class Dojo Ministers - Year 2- (Behaviour for Learning Development)
- Ministers will visit each class and make a note of which class has the most green dojos at the end of each week.
- Ministers must let Mrs Wright know which classes have placed in 3rd, 2nd and 1st place. This will then be shared with the school during PRAISE assembly.
Learning Environment Ministers - Year 3 - (Safeguarding and Welfare Development)
- Ministers will visit each class’ cloakroom area once a week at lunchtime and make a note of which class has the tidiest area – all coats must be on hooks, nothing on the floor.
- Ministers will make a note of the best class and share with Mr Naylor and Mrs McCallum.
- This will be carried out on a different day each week so that classes do not know to expect you. Hopefully this way, all children will always try to keep their cloakroom area tidy.
Technology Ministers - Year 4 - (Computing Development)
- Ministers will make a note of any issues raised about technology in school.
- All Pupil Parliament ministers must report any issues to the Technology Minister who will then share with Mr Naylor in the Pupil Parliament meeting and refer to Miss Roberts (Computing Lead).
Entertainment Ministers - Year 5 - (Extra-Curricula Development)
- Ministers will ensure that the children will have a voice to decide on Lunch/After School clubs.
- Ministers will be involved in evaluating whole school activities and the level of participation.
- Ministers will visit classes to gather evidence of ongoing clubs and extra activities.
Values Ministers - Year 6 - (SMSC - Catholic Ethos Development)
- Ministers will ensure that presence of The Holy Spirit is clear throughout the school.
- Ministers will be involved in evaluating whole school worship, and visiting a range of classes at intervals to evaluate in class worship.
- Ministers will visit classes to gather evidence of ongoing worship, prayer and religious teaching and learning.
