Turnham Academy's Pupil Parliament promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences.
Pupil Parliament benefits the whole school, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their opinions as well as influence the decisions that are made on their behalf. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.
To become a member of Turnham Academy's Pupil Parliament, pupils must write an application and then take part in an interview process.
The aims of the Pupil Parliament:
Represent all pupils and includes a fair representation of the school.
Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views.
Feedback to pupils about what happened about their views.
Action decisions that have been made or explain why they cannot happen.
Facilitate whole school Wednesday assemblies about issues that concern our pupils.
