Duke's School Parliament

Our Parliament Members

23rd September 2021

Our new School Parliament met today to discuss our roles within the school and to vote on our roles within the parliament.  We looked at the job descriptions of the Chairperson and the Secretary.  We then put ourselves forward and gave a short pitch as to why we felt we would be able to fill the role.  As a group, we then held a democratic vote on who we felt would meet the criteria and complete the role to the best of their abilities. The results of the vote saw Daniel elected as Chairperson and Lydia as Secretary.  We also discussed why we wanted to be part of the school parliament and what things we would like to see happen this year.

8th November 2021

Our new School Parliament met today to discuss how the first half term has been at Duke of Norfolk, discussing ideas that we could take forward to Mrs. Bland and Miss Wilson to make Dukes an even better place. We have talked about its practicality and feasibility. Ideas we discussed included sponsored events for charities, more outdoor furniture, and sports equipment. 


6th December 2021

School Parliament met today to write a letter to Mrs. Bland and Miss Wilson to ask for time to discuss our ideas. In the letter we said. 


Dear Mrs Bland and Miss Wilson, 

School council would like to arrange a meeting to discuss some ideas that we believe will make our school an even better place. 


These ideas include:

  • School compost bins

  • Outdoor furniture

  • Charity events

We have many more ideas to share with you. We would love to have a chat with you at a suitable date and time.


Please get back to as soon as you can. 


Yours sincerely,

Lydia (Walnut), Milo (Walnut), Daniel (Hazelnut), Sophie (Hazelnut), Rhys (Coconut) and Thomas (Coconut)

School Parliament received a response from Miss Wilson and Mrs Bland, so we took the time to create a PowerPoint presentation, preparing what we are going to say on Tuesday 14th December.

No meetings in January/ February due to staff and pupil absence.

Spoke in Good Work Assembly about what our intentions are for the summer term. Asked for pupil's thoughts and asked for any ideas to be passed on to Miss Bynon. Began observing the playgrounds to see if pupils are looking after equipment. 

5th April 2022

School Parliament met and discussed issues with the trim trail being used before and after school and how this could be a danger. Created a poster to be put up in the playground and are going to discuss this as well as our observations on children respecting equipment which we will discuss in assembly on Wednesday 6th April 2022.
