Our Student Parliament has an influential and important voice in the development of our school.
Students from all year groups are represented on the parliament which is led by our Sixth Form Senior Student Team. The Parliament meet on a half-termly basis. Parliament members also get to attend monthly ‘Headteacher’s Question Time’ – an opportunity to ask the Head about any issues affecting students in the school.
In recent years the Student Parliament has been involved in shaping our school’s behaviour system, redesigning our new toilet facilities, making decisions about the use of monies raised from fundraising activities, launching a campaign against littering and contributing to a review of home learning at Thomas Alleyne’s.
The student body get to have a ‘voice’ regarding key matters in school such as:
Teaching and Learning
Health and Safety
External fundraising events within the community
Representatives of the Student Parliament take turns in giving votes of thanks at Prize Giving Evenings and attend Governing Body meetings to represent the student voice. More recently they have also been requested to participate in the student panel interviews for new staff appointments.
They are a very important and integral group of young people who are passionate about learning, their school and their community.
