The Pupil Parliament Ash Tree Vision
What's the story?
At Kippax Ash Tree, we are passionate about our 'Voices and Choices' curriculum. We are passionate about encouraging children to develop and use their voices to make real life choices.

What is Pupil Parliament?
We actively promote pupil leadership opportunities, enabling our children to develop valuable communication, organisation and debating skills. We believe that providing these key roles of responsibility are paramount to their development and learning experience. Pupils relish the opportunity to become a greater part of school life and enjoy making their voices heard.
Our successful Pupil Parliament is a well-respected body within the school and consists of eight pupils from Years 5 and 6, 11 Members of Parliament (MPs) and one Leader of the House. Children involved in our Pupil Parliament meet regularly to discuss topics, issues and initiatives that affect them and their learning environment. As part of their responsibilities, the team organise their own meetings, decide on an agenda, share new ideas and vote on a number of school-related issues.
