Pupil Parliament elections and procedures support children in developing an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the process. Children who are elected as Members of Pupil Parliament (MPP’s) also have the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament in Westminster and experience different rooms within the Palaces themselves including the House of Commons and House of Lords. In recent years our MPP’s visited Luton Town Hall where they had the pleasure of meeting the Mayor of Luton. The MP for Luton North, Sarah Owen has also visited the school, and spent time with the children discussing her role in Parliament.
Rule of Law:
Clear expectations and rules within school support children in developing an understanding and appreciation that having rules keeps everyone safe. During the school year we also hope to welcome our local community police officers into school to talk to children about living under the , how it protects them as individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety.
Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith:
Teaching values such as unity, tolerance and respect supports and develops an understanding that the freedom to choose and practise other faiths and beliefs is important in a civilized world and is protected by law. These values also develop children’s acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs should be respected and tolerated, and that we can all live harmoniously together.
