School Parliament

School Parliament 

Our School Parliament plays a vital role in the decision making of the school and meets regularly. Representatives are elected by their classmates at the start of the academic year.They meet at least once a month and report back to their teachers and classmates regarding their work. The Headteacher and senior leadership team consult the School Parliament regarding pupils’ feelings and opinions about school matters, presenting their ideas to staff and governors. In assemblies and PSHCE lessons, we follow a theme common to all year groups. There are weekly Circle Time sessions, in which children have the opportunity to spend quality time together as a class, discussing issues which affect them.

British Values

We live in a democracy where trust, liberty, freedom, democracy and respect underpin our communities. The school promotes core British values across our curriculum from literature, symbolic international statements from leaders who embody these values. We work alongside our elected local Councillors who share their expertise and knowledge of the democratic process.  They represent our community on our Governing Body and work with our children to enable them through assemblies and the wider curriculum to value the freedoms the United Kingdom holds dear.

School Parliament is working closely with senior leaders to think about the structure of the playground and how we can make the playground a better place to be. The School Parliament are currently thinking about how we could split the playground into sections, having different activities going on for the children to take part in.
Two of our School Parliament members have been lucky enough to become Ambassadors for our school. As Ambassadors they are being given the opportunity to visit other schools over the coming months, focusing on the teaching and learning and sharing ideas. They will also show children around from the other schools and talk to them about teaching and learning in our school when they come to visit Ayresome.
 
As part of the school’s commitment to British Values, the PSHCE scheme ‘JIGSAW’ is now part of our core delivery model to ensure good coverage across the curriculum.
