Pupil Parliament

The Pupil Parliament at Connaught Junior School forms an essential part of our school. We believe in children having a say in how the school is run and being a part of the decision making. It also gives the children an experience of democracy in how they are voted in by their peers, and how they consult with and seek the opinions of the children in their classes on the current issues affecting the school.

The Connaught Pupil Parliament is made up of 4 councils; Learning, Friendship, Eco and Safety. We believe that these cover the areas that affect our children most directly. There is a council representative for each council from every class, years 3 to 6. At Connaught Junior School we strongly value the development of leadership and responsibility in young children and the children never fail to take their roles very seriously. They represent the children of Connaught Junior School and make sure their voices are heard!

Friendship Council

The Friendship Council continues to focus in making playtimes more harmonious and productive. They have been talking with their classes about what they like/don’t like about playtimes. Money raised through a sponsored sporting event will be used to buy playtime equipment to help promote the children’s teamwork and collaboration skills. Friendship Buddies look out for children who seem lonely or need assistance. The Friendship Council have also worked with our Sports Captains who lead games at lunchtimes. 

Learning Council

The Learning Council is looking into what Connaught children think good learning looks like and are asking their classes the question: ‘What should an ideal Connaught child be like?’ This will create a display called A Connaught Child is.... so that all children, parents and visitors to the school can see what we value in terms of attitudes and learning.

Eco Council

The Eco Council is working on the outside environment, particularly the garden area. They have written to Mr Sales asking for permission to revamp this area and will design it and hopefully fund it through liaison with local businesses. They have also hung bird boxes around the grounds to provide homes for birds.

Safety Council

The Safety Council has been touring the school grounds and discussing areas that could be improved and where children feel safe and don’t feel safe. 

Links with other schools

In the Autumn Term children from the Pupil Parliament were offered the opportunity of working with Drama specialists from St Georges Secondary School in Ascot. They created and performed a play in assembly about friendship, loneliness and belonging. It was a wonderful experience for all!
