The Good Shepherd

Catholic Primary School

“I am the Good Shepherd; I know my own and my own know me”. John 10:14"

School Parliament

'Democracy is the form of government

in which the free are rulers.'



Who are we?

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. 




What do we do?

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:

  • to act with selflessness
  • to act with integrity
  • to act with objectivity
  • to be open to other suggestions and ideas
  • to act with honesty
  • to develop leadership in the school.


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.

Matthew 25:40


As effective members of parliament we listen to and represent the views of our class, we represent our school and we get things done!
