What is a school Parliament?

A school Parliament is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

“School Parliament” means all kinds of school-based groups run by students, including student forums and youth parliaments.

What does it do?
A school Parliament does a number of things:
• The school Parliament meets – usually with a teacher present – to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
• Members of the school Parliament will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff.
