Pupil Parliament

At Danetree Primary School we actively promote pupil independence and leadership opportunities with the aim of developing valuable communication and organisation skills.  We believe that it is vital for our pupils to have a voice and be involved in key matters related to our school.  
The Danetree Pupil Parliament is a vibrant and respected body within the school.  It runs each academic year and consists of two elected members from each class from Year 1 to Year 6.  Meetings are held on a regular basis and facilitated by members of our teaching staff.  Children share new ideas or matters that need to be discussed, feed back from consultations with their classes and bring thoughts and resolutions on issues affecting their peers.  Outcomes of these discussions are shared with the Leadership and Management Team who consider, discuss and respond to the issues raised.
During the last academic year, Pupil Parliament contributed to the fund raising and development of:
* New MUGA for sporting activities
* New playground equipment
* Their new notice board in the Year 6 corridor
* Designing and deliving leaflets to our neighbours about safe parking around the surronding school roads
* Graphical designs of our new Early Years building flyers (which were shared with local MP's and even the Mayor!)
Since we have returned from the summer break, Pupil Parliament have delivered an assembly on anti-bullying and also created a leaflet that can be seen around the school and has also been sent out to all parents and carers of children at Danetree through parentmail.
Here is a copy of the amazing leaflet below!
