At Park Hall Academy we have an outstanding School Parliament which is made up of 24 pupils from Year 1 through to Year 6. School Parliament members are democratically elected by their peers to represent the views of all of our fantastic pupils and to ensure the pupil voice is heard. Parliament meetings allow the opportunity for Parliament members to be able to discuss their ideas and share opinions with school Leaders on a regular basis. Any pupil who shares a concern or has a brilliant idea with a School Parliament member will find that their concern or suggestion is promptly passed on to the full Parliament and acted upon.
School Parliament meetings follow an agenda created by its members and are led by our Chairperson and minutes are taken by the secretary. These roles are rotated so that all members can share these positions of responsibility.
The School Parliament has been responsible for many school improvements over the years which has included the designing of a brand new outdoor learning area and the purchasing of the animals for our Park Hall Farm. The School Parliament also organised a whole school vote to name the animals.
Being a member of the Park Hall Parliament is a really responsible position to hold, but one that is embraced whole heartedly by our enthusiastic and hardworking pupils.
Our academy Parliament Aims;
