Welcome to our School Parliament Page!


What we do:

Our recently elected School Parliament meets every two weeks. The aim of the School Parliament is to give the children of South Kirkby Academy School a greater voice in what happens in school. The Parliament Ministers discuss issues with their year groups and bring concerns and suggestions back to the meeting. The Parliament decides what actions need to be taken to improve our school.

These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.

Members of the School Parliament are responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as: what to spend fund raising money on; improving reward time across the school or planning new playground activities.

Being a school parliamentarian is a really responsible job and at South Kirkby Academy, School Parliament is a powerful and effective way to ensure children understand democracy, responsibility and what makes a good citizen.


The School Parliament Mission Statement:

To make sure that our school is a safe and happy place for children.

To make sure that children have a place to voice their concerns.

To encourage all children in school to suggest improvements.

To make sure any suggestion or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
