Welcome to the 'Pupil Parliament' page
Our Pupil Parliament is made up of one member from each class within our school alongside our Head Boy and Girl and their two Vices. We have a total of 22 members of the Pupil Parliament.
In September the class representatives made a speech to their class and were voted by their peers.
Head Boy/Girl and their Vices had to make a speech to the whole of Year 6 and were again voted in to their positions by their peers.
Our Pupil Parliament members are:
Tadiwa & Akchiya
Luke & Benjamin
Amy & Josephone
Year 3 - Grace, Jessica, Alex & Diyon
Year 4 - Joshua, Orson, Evelyn & Zack
Year 5 - Rasikka, William, Chloe & Lucy
Year 6 - Katie, Millie, Matthew & Thomas
Pupil Parliament meet once per fortnight with Mrs Greco. Each meeting has an agenda of items to discuss.
Our main focus this year is to:
* Fundraise for the school and both local and national charities. Pupil Parliament members had to research local and national charities that are important to them and their families and report back during our meetings. We then decided which charities we wanted to support.
* Improve parking outside of the school by encouraging pupils to walk to school where they can or park further away and walk a proportion of the journey.
* Support the school to improve teaching and learning even further by completing learning walks in to different lessons with members of the SLT. Feedback is then provided to teachers from members of the Pupil Parliament.
During our meetings we also provide feedback from our class on different aspects of the school.

School Development Plan
Here at Bedgrove Junior School, hearing what children have to say about our school is important to us. So important in fact, that in the summer term the Pupil Parliament helped the Senior Leadership Team and the governors with aspects of the school development plan.
During meetings, MPPs gave their opinions about the 4 key areas of the school development plan (Leadership & Management, Teaching & Learning, Behaviour & Welfare and Outcomes for Pupils).
We had to discuss and consider the following questions:
Mrs Greco was really impressed with the depth and understanding of the MPP's responses and incorporated their ideas into the main School Development Plan.
