This year, we are launching an exciting new School Parliament which will replace the existing School Council.
On Tuesday 16th July 2019, children in KS1 and KS2 will be taking part in Jubilee’s School Parliament Election. Children in KS1 and KS2 classes will write manifestos which explain why they want to be a member of School Parliament and then their peers will vote which children they believe should represent their class in the election.
Each child will then stand up in a pre-election campaign assembly (on the 9th July) and deliver their manifesto aloud to the school. Candidates will be campaigning, along with their peers and teachers, for votes.
Prior to the 16th July 2019, the children will have received their official registration cards which will need to be checked in the hall on the day of voting and exchanged for their ballot card. In turn, this will allow them to vote!
Not forgetting year 6, who will be involved in organising a valedictory address to their year group, which is considered to be a final farewell to their class mates as they embark on the next chapter of their educational journey.
Good Luck Everyone!
Our School Council is a representative group of pupils elected by our peers to represent their views and raise issues with the senior managers and governors of our school.
Our School Council is a group of friendly and approachable leaders who listen to all children and adults who are part of the school. We are a group who will strive to make a difference to our school. We are considerate of different cultures and beliefs and are keen to be a voice for everyone in the school.
Our focus this year…
is to promote our school values, healthy eating and recycling throughout the school. As a team, we will work together to ensure our school is a positive, healthy and safe place to learn.
Spring Term 2017
The School Council attended Trinity School to take part in ‘Children’s Parliament’ with other primary schools in Bexley.
Before the School Council went, they interviewed the year 6 to see whether there were any questions they had regarding the transition to secondary school. These questions were then asked on the day and the children recorded the answers so that they could feed back to the year 6.
