The Pupil Parliament at Knaphill Lower School forms an essential part of our school. We believe in the children having a say on the things that matter to them. It also gives the children an experience of democracy in how they are voted in by their peers. In addition, how they consult with and seek the opinions of the children in their classes on set topics, or on the current issues affecting the school.
Our successful Pupil Parliament is a well-respected body with the school and consists of 12 pupils from Years 1 and 2 during the Autumn and Spring Term, with 6 pupils from Reception in the Summer Term. Each class elects 2 new members every term to sit on the Pupil Parliament. Those children that are elected meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them, and their learning enviroment. As part of their responsibility all members assist with assemblies, are exemplary role models, discuss topics with their class members, and make decisions with senior members of staff. They represent the children of Knaphill Lower School and make sure their voices are heard.
