We represent the school and make good changes and decisions to:
- Save the environment
- Improve the school
- Make our school look better
- Cherish everybody’s ideas and this is reflected in the work we do
- Set good examples and make everyone feel safe and happy
The main aim of the School Parliament is to help to make our school a better place and to give an opportunity to have our ideas and opinions heard.
We raise money for charities including Children in Need, Sports Relief, Cancer Research and Comic Relief.
The children are very important at our school and we value their ideas and opinions. We want to give them opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues.
Every September each class votes for School Parliament, Nourish, Flourish and Eco Warriors to be representatives of the school. These are children who put themselves forward and may be required to present to the class why they would make a good school parliament member.
The school parliament members give up a lunch time every two weeks to meet and discuss school issues and events. Everyone has a say in these meetings so that no one is left out. They then report back to the whole school during Collective Worship.
Children will often propose fund-raising activities and work with the staff and FONES to organise these events; children’s team points and awards are organised; and any school issues or niggles may result in the school parliament finding a solution or creating a new rule.
North Elmham has sparkled today! Well done to all of the children for putting in so much effort, we raised lots of money for Children in Need. A big round of applause to our fabulous ‘Bake off’ and ‘Dance off’ winners too! A truly wonderful day had by all raising funds for a great cause.
School Parliament have had an excellent first day collecting donations to raise money for the Royal British Legion, supporting this years Poppy Appeal.
Another fantastic meeting held today. School Parliament finalised plans for Children in Need, they discussed how to organise donations for the Poppy Appeal and also talked about lunch time activities.
School Parliament have had a very busy half term! We have already started to organise fundraising events such as Children in Need and Christmas Jumper Day.
After listening to the children’s ideas in the school, School Parliament discussed and have started to look into potential After School Clubs to start again!
We are so excited to find ways to improve our school and raise funds for various charities.
