Pupil Leadership


Alverton School Parliament

At Alverton, we try to involve the children in many different aspects of school life. One of the ways in which we do this is through the Alverton School Parliament.

Through the Alverton School Parliament there are many opportunities for the children to be represented and their opinions heard, enabling us to include their views in our decision making and planning.

The Alverton School Parliament is elected every July following the annual Hustings in a private ballot. The thirteen ministers are: Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Library (x2), Sport (x2), Music and Drama (x2), Environment (x2). Ministers are all in Year 6.

Ministers have to sign a pledge agreeing that they will be great representatives for Alverton School, setting an example to others with their manners and behaviour, showing respect to everyone and helping to develop their area of responsibility.
