Pupil Voice and Participation
At Park View children have multiple opportunities to participate in school life.
Some of the opportunities we have in school include:
Article 12 (Respect for the views of the child): When adults are making decisions that affect children, children have the right to say what they think should happen and have their opinions taken into account.
At Park View we support children to form idea, share them with others and debate topics that are important to them and current affairs.
We have a weekly debating assembly where we learn about a topic from the news and share our thoughts with the class and the wider school.
Please follow the link below.
During the week, we learn about how Parliament is structured, how each House works, the role of our MP and how we contribute to the democratic process.
A quote from an email from Maria Miller sent to Mrs Roberts
'When visiting Park View Primary I've been so impressed with the children's interest and engagement with politics and their local community, and you must take tremendous credit for being the catalyst for that enthusiasm. For a healthy democracy it is vital that we include young people in the conversation and get them involved from an early age. Your work as a teacher and Parliament Ambassador is invaluable in promoting that participation, to all our benefit.'
