Want to be a member of School Parliament?
Are you interested in becoming a School MP? Do you want to represent our school and propose changes to make our school a better place to learn?
Democracy is an important British Value which gives people a say in how the government is run, which they do by voting. At Sir John Heron, pupils exercise their democratic rights by voting for who they want to be their school representatives (Member of Parliament - MPs)!
Every year, we hold elections at Sir John Heron for our new School Parliament. Children in Year 2 - Year 6 can put themselves forward as a candidate for the election, and two children will be voted in from each class.
Here's how to become a member of the School Parliament:
- If you are in Year 2 - Year 6, and want to put yourself forward as a candidate for the School Parliament, you will need to make a campaign video to persuade your classmates why they should vote for you.
- Your classmates will watch your campaign video before going to vote. The votes will then be counted. If you receive the highest number of votes, you will be elected as an MP!
