Who’s Part Of Our School Parliament
A School Parliament is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school. Each September, children in each class are given the opportunity to be voted to represent their class as a Member of Parliament. Each class votes for two students to represent their class in the School Parliament.
Parliament examines what the Government is doing, makes new laws, holds the power to set taxes and debates the issues of the day.
The House of Commons and House of Lords each play an important role in Parliament’s work.
