Pupil Parliament

At Nancealverne we have School Parliament that is made up of two students from each class in the secondary school. Each Parliament member completed an application and went through an interview in order to secure their place on the Parliament.
The Pupil Parliament is split into two parties and each student member decided which party they would like to belong to based on their own personal beliefs about ways to improve the school.  Our parties are:
The Kemeneth Party (Community Party) and The Skol Party (School Party).
Both parties meet weekly to develop policies and campaigns to improve aspects of the school.  Our Parliament has worked on campaigns to improve the health of the students at school and has supported the PTA in identifying essential resources for the school. 
Our Pupil Parliament were able to support both the Cornwall SEND Board and the development of the 'Local Offer' website.
Following a visit to County Hall in Truro, we shared our ideas about making the information that they share, more accessible. We told them about symbols and designed a poster that is now being used by the SEND board.
We also designed a web page for the 'Local Offer'.  Our page used video's to share information about the services available, making the information more accessible to all.
After these successes we hope to share our ideas with our Local MP and help to make all information more accessible.
