'Democracy is the form of government
in which the free are rulers.'
Our school parliament is made up of 24 pupils who were elected to represent the views of all pupils and to work with the leadership team to improve our school.
Each year, after an electoral campaign and polling day, every class will elect representatives from their year group; they will be members of the school parliament for the next academic year working with the departments:
Department for Peace and Justice
Department for Learning Culture and the Arts
Department for Health and Wellbeing
Department for the Environment
Each representative follows a set of principles:
Our faith calls us to love God and to love our neighbours in every situation, especially our sisters and brothers living in poverty. Following in the footsteps of Christ, we hope to make present in our unjust and broken world, the justice, love and peace of God.
In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers [or sisters] of mine, you did it to me.
As effective members of parliament we listen to and represent the views of our class, we represent our school and we get things done!
“The school’s commitment towards developing pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural qualities is second to none.” OFSTED March 2014
