Pupil Parliament

Our successful Pupil Parliament is a vibrant and well-respected body within the school and consists of twelve pupils who presented to their peers as to why they should represent their class. 

Pupil Parliament actively promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling the children to develop valuable communication, co-operation, organisational and debating skills, as well as developing a sense of responsibility. Children involved in our Pupil Parliament meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment. As part of their responsibilities, the team organise their own meetings, decide on an agenda, share new ideas, lead projects agreed by the Senior Leadership Team and vote on a number of school-related issues. Actions from each meeting are shared with the rest of the school and feed directly into whole school actions. The main aim for the team this year is to further develop pupil voice in all aspects of Teaching and Learning.


Springfield School have appointed an Eco-Council with the mission to improve eco-sustainability across the school. Each class has an Eco-Council representative that meet frequently and the team have the task across the year to get the whole school and the wider community involved in exciting environmental projects. 

The school has signed up to take part in an Eco-Schools programme. The Eco-Schools programme provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change within their school and have a positive impact in their wider community. The programme encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to work together to develop their knowledge and environmental awareness.
