Pupil Parliament

Pupil Parliament

Our successful Pupil Parliament is a vibrant and well-respected body within the school and consists of 12 pupils from Years 1 to 6.

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.

Our focus for the beginning of the year is ‘Anti-bulllying’. The team are busy designing posters, sharing ideas and planning a lesson that will used to support learning during anti-bulling week. Further information to follow!

Eco-Council

Springfield School have recently 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 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.  

Based on an environmental review, the team have chosen three topics  to help focus their Eco-Schools work and these are featured within an action plan created during the Autumn term.  The first project 'Switch off Fortnight' is a campaign due to be launched mid-November, with the focus of reducing energy wastage.  Further information on this will follow, so please look out for further information in the school newsletter.
