Annually, our learners from Years 2-6, are encouraged to apply to be part of our school parliament, they are asked to share how they would contribute and engage in moving their school forward. It is important that our Pupil Parliament represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
This years parliamentarians are:
3rd December 2020
- First meeting of the pupil parliament for this academic year, Miss Kilpatrick introduced the meeting and encouraged the children to introduce themselves and why they wanted to be part of school parliament
- Mrs R then encouraged children to think about feedback they had from being back in school in these rather unusual times and we talked about positives before thinking about our next steps.
- It was felt that children feel safe in school and because they were in a class bubble, they didn’t feel isolated and was nice to be with their friends.
- TT rockstars and IDL was a positive and the children enjoyed doing these in school and at home.
- Liked having their own playground because they preferred the smaller place to play and it was better when they weren’t mixing with the other age groups.
- They all felt challenged in their learning
- Liked having the one-way system going outside.
- Feel safe because they were always washing their hands and sanitising
What we could do better?
- Have both entrances open for morning and afternoon. It was explained that this wasn’t possible in the current climate due to staffing levels
- Too much litter around the school, not on school premises
- Time capsule to explain to future generations what it was like to be in school
- Would like more focus on handwriting as some children find it very hard
Time to talk with their friends in other classes through
Pupil Parliament 2019 - 2020
We use some of the money raised by 'Friends of Ysgol Cae'r Nant', to help us make some 'big' decisions. Some of the decisions our school parliament have been involved in this year are;
- Buying goals for our playground for when we play football
- Asking for extra bikes and games for us to use during our break and lunch times
- Sharing our thoughts with the Head and Assistant Headteacher on what we think about the amazing Mantle of the Expert
- Carrying out learning walks to see how good our school is and to share any ideas we have, for making it even better.
- Presented information to the whole school about our concerns on keeping our hands clean after going to the bathroom!
