Welcome to Roecroft School Parliament. We are a very important part of the school because we are the children’s voice.
We meet regularly with our link teacher Miss Houghton.
The School Parliament was voted for by the whole school following an assembly where they made a speech about why they would be a good member of parliament. The children are already excited about the opportunity to go to visit the Houses of Parliament in summer term and help raise money for charities throughout the year.
Our school friends tell the parliament what they like about school and what they would like to change and they try to action their suggestions. We also raise money and decide how it is spent.
The school parliament notice board displays information about what they do and they regularly share information with the rest of the school during assemblies.
This academic year School Parliament have:
- Helped raise money by selling cakes for Children In Need 2017
- Sold poppies to support the Royal British Legion
- Attended the Stotfold Community Christmas Fair to raise money for the school
- Used money raised to buy each class a new 'class reading book' and playground equipment including space hoppers.
In Summer term, the School Parliament visited The Houses of Parliament. The children had a fantastic day getting a tour of inside the House of Commons, House of Lords and Westminster Hall. They also took part in a workshop where they learnt how women had to persevere to get the vote.
When the children got back to school they prepared an assembly about their visit. They discussed how having the vote links to our school value of freedom and about the British Value democracy.
