Pupil Parliament and Eco Council
Pupil Parliament at Great Malvern Primary School promotes pupil leadership opportunities, enabling children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills through key roles of responsibility and new experiences. This structure is an ideal opportunity for 12 pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 to be actively involved in the way that the school is run. Pupil Parliament benefits the whole school including pupils and teachers 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.
We have now had our first meeting of the new school year and we have voted for our new prime minister and deputy prime minister. Watch this space for the results once the votes have been counted...
What is Eco Council?

Why do we have an Eco Council?
-To ensure our school is eco-friendly and prepares pupils to live with reflection of the environment.
-To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
-To discuss and raise issues related to the environment.
