Meet our new leadership team for

Bussage C of E Primary School Parliament

2022.

_________________________________________________________

Our first whole parliament meeting has now been held, here is the report from this first meeting written by the Parliament Leadership team:

School Parliament meeting 2022

Thursday 13th January

On Thursday the 13th of January, the first parliament meeting of 2022 took place. Our parliament is organised into 5 different sections: Sport, Education, Values, Charity and Eco. A ministry has been created for each of these areas in which representatives from across different areas of the school make contributions.

It was held in the school hall where we discussed each ministries’ action plans for the year. Each ministry had multiple representatives who explained each of their action plans clearly. Every participant had the chance to ask questions and make comment on the statements made.

Sports Ministry

Sports Ministry are planning to do the following: sending out surveys, to get people’s opinions on Physical Education (P.E) and sports; house events between the different houses; hand out flyers to children about school P.E. There was one question asked for sports ministry –  Will there be any class challenges?

Values Ambassadors

Values Ambassadors are planning to complete the following: to use the worship journal after each assembly finishes; lead an Easter service; put up a new values board on display in the hall. The questions asked included – What is the worship folder? The ministry replied by informing us that it’s a folder that they will document all of the assemblies in.

Eco Ministry

Eco Ministry are planning to create bird/bat boxes, rota litter picking and develop class energy monitors. There has been a discussion about the possibility of buying solar panels. The representatives said they were not sure about how the school would pay for this.

Learning Detectives

Learning Detectives are trying to embrace Bussage School Learning Powers. They are doing this by sticking learning power stickers in children’s books if their teacher thinks they have shown a good example of a learning power. The Learning Detectives are going to be conducting questionnaires for all children in the school. No questions were asked because the ministry explained in great detail about their plans for the year.

Charity Ministry

This term, Charity Ministry are going to be raising money for Comic Relief (Red Nose Day) some ideas the charity ministry has had are dressing up, a joke talent show and possibly a cake sale if Covid-19 allows. The questions asked for charity were – What is happening on red nose day?

The next meeting will be held in the last week of March. The meeting was successful as we discussed all the action plans for the year. Our parliament team would like to give a big thank you to all the children who participated in the first 2022 meeting.

Here are the Ministry members followed by their action plans for this year:

School parliament meeting 2022

Reported by the Parliament Leadership Team.

 On the 28th of April 2022, a whole Parliament meeting took place to discuss how each Ministry is getting on with their action plans, what they had achieved so far and what was left to complete during the Summer Term.

These are our findings:

Learning detectives – The representatives explained how years 3-6 have started putting learning power stickers in their own books. Learning detectives noticed in some books it wasn’t clear how they have used that learning power.

Values Ambassadors – The Values Ambassadors told the Parliament Leaders about their targets for the summer term. Their targets included making a new values board to put on display in the hall and collecting photos from previous term’s displays.

Eco Ministry – Once again Eco Ministry has completed all their goals for the spring term. Their goal for the summer term is getting solar panels for the roof. Eco Ministry had a conversation with Charity Ministry about how they can raise money for the solar panels.

Charity Ministry – In the spring term Charity Ministry raised £122 for red nose day by dress up back to front and doing crazy hair. Charity have planned to do a fun run on the school field based on the distances between planets in our solar system. This event will be raising money for solar panels on the school roof.

Sports – Sports Ministry are going to set up house competitions in key stages for the end of a PE unit. They are also planning to raise money for a table tennis table.

It was lovely to see members of the Parliament participate so well and some super questions were asked.

The last Parliament meeting of the year is planned for July where each Ministry will update on their action plans and voting for next year’s Parliament Leaders will be planned.

The following report has been written by the parliament leaders:

School Parliament Review of the First Meeting.

Our school ministries congregated together for the first meeting of the academic year, which was held on the 2nd November at 1:30pm. Each ministry put forward people to speak who did an excellent job. They told us their reviews of the previous year’s agenda and also informed us of their plan for this year. After each ministry spoke, many questions were asked and everyone was participating. Every ministry had put a whole lot of effort in and they should be very proud of themselves. Here are some photographs of our first meeting this year:

After his meeting with Mr Ferguson, members from all of the ministries in Class 5 and 6 gathered together for a questions and answers session. The children had thought about some really thought provoking questions to ask David Drew MP.

The mid-year parliament meeting 2018 (3.5.18)

This was a very successful second parliament meeting; everyone turned up with great attitudes and ideas. We have now been informed about all of the targets that each ministry have completed and plan to do in the rest of this year.

Towards the end of the meeting, Mr Ferguson joined us to talk about David Drew MP’s impending visit and about our Kenya link.

We are looking forward to the end of the year meeting.

This is what we have recorded:

Eco Ministry  

  • They have bought the school tortoise by raising money: at Christmas fair, a tortoise colouring competition and all together raised £125 which was matched by the PTA so they had over £250 to buy the tortoise and all it needs.
  • Ben and Charlie are collecting data about the lights around our school to create a survey
  • They delivered an assembly about a problem with plastic in our oceans
  • They have signed up to terra-cycle who recycle plastic wrappers to make children aware of the impact on the world’s environment

Charity Ministry

School Parliament Review – meeting 1 of academic year 2017-2018

On the 23rd November 2017, at 2:40pm, the ministries gathered for their first meeting about their action plans for this year. There were lots of questions asked and great co-operation. Each ministry put forward a spokesperson to address us with their plan. We could clearly see that a lot of effort was put into these plans as the future of Bussage will ascend with them. This year we have an additional ministry to our previous four. Our new ministry is Sports Committee, they will ensure that sport is fun and participated in fully by pupils at Bussage both inside of school and out.

We look forward to seeing Bussage improve even more during this year. Please look at the attached agendas for each ministry for further clarification.
