Roecroft School Parliament
We are a very important part of the school because we are the children’s voice.
At Roecroft Lower School we aim to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about school life. We teach children a sense of belonging to the school through decision making. Thus they learn to value their own and other people’s needs and they are better able to make their own life choices today. In our school, School Parliament makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how we should help others. We teach children to understand that others in the world need support and we can help by holding events to raise money.
We meet regularly with our link teacher Miss Houghton.
The School Parliament is voted for by the whole school following an assembly where they make a speech about why they would be a good member of parliament.
