Pupil Parliament Fund Raising Events!

This year for the first time, the children have elected their own Pupil Parliament! Led by Prime Minister Oskar, Deputy Prime Minister Isla and Secretary Brooke, the ministers are keen to do all they can for their fellow pupils.  More details about the Parliament can be found below, however, they are very excited to announce their first fundraising events!

 

The Children In Need Pudsey Colouring Competition:

For 20p, children can enter the Pudsey Colouring Competition which will be judged by Mrs Hankins and Mrs Tilbury-Leeson on Children In Need Day. The winner will receive a special prize made just for them! Please could the 20p be brought into school on Monday 15 November. The closing date for entries is Friday 19 November.

 

The Children In Need Bake Sale:

This will take place on Friday, 19 November to raise money for this fantastic charity. The event is kindly supported by 'Piece of Cake', a local cake making business.  The sale will take place after school on the KS1 playground and on the KS2 field. To support this event it would be very much appreciated if cakes could be brought into school on the Friday morning.

 

Your support is very much appreciated.

Introducing The Pupil Parliament:

Our Pupil Parliament is led by three Year 6 pupils who take on the key roles of Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Secretary. These children are our ‘Pupil Leadership Team’ and organise meetings, set the agenda and record minutes. The Pupil Leadership Team meets with a link Governor once a term to feedback and discuss up and coming priorities. This ensures that our Parliament is run by our children for our children. The Belmont Pupil Parliament meets every two weeks and pupils are expected to gather the views of their peers or complete tasks within this time. 

 

Each long term, children meet as a ministry, or sub-committee, to discuss issues relating to a specific area of school life. The focus for the ministry changes each term and children are elected due to their passion for, or skill in, a particular area. Two ministers attend from each Key Stage 2 class; one is selected by the class teacher and one is elected by the children in the class. These ministers will change three times a year, providing more children with the opportunity to be the voice of their peers. We use online resources from Online learning - Parliament UK Education to help pupils to gain a better understanding of the UK Parliament. This will help them to deepen their understanding of politics and to see the links between our Pupil Parliament and how our country is run.
