Pupil ParliamentGiving our children greater responsibilities
Parliament in session!
At the Fairlawn and Haseltine Federation, we believe that pupil voice must be at the centre of our work. To that end, we run a Pupil Parliament. Elected class representatives meet on a weekly basis to discuss school issues. The Pupil Parliament is run by a Junior Leadership Team (JLT) which consists of a Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary. This ensures that it is run by our children and for our children.
There are three committees within the Pupil Parliament:
- Teaching for Learning Committee;
- Community Committee
- Values Committee.
Each committee works on separate projects over the year, reporting back to all members when appropriate. When appropriate, the whole Pupil Parliament also discusses whole school issues.
Some of our Pupil Parliament children from both schools recently met the mayor of Lewisham and had the chance to find out more about local politics.
