Eastbury Community School

Eastbury Parliament

We are very proud to have our very own school parliament! This is an opportunity to hear the views of all pupils through a democratic process.

Each class has two class councillors. The councillors are responsible for collecting the views and issues raised in their classes. In Year three, instead of councillors, each class has two MPs (Members of Parliament) who lead their council in bi-weekly meetings. They take minutes and chair the meeting, supported by a Deputy Headteacher. These councils are arranged in Eastbury Family groupings. 

The MPs from each Eastbury Community Family then meet with the Headteacher each half term.

A special 'Polling Day' takes place to vote for the councillors and MPs-  children have to visit the school hall to vote on ballot papers and enter into a box.
