School Parliament

Welcome to Cutthorpe Primary School Parliament

The role of the School Parliament at Cutthorpe Primary School is to give pupils a chance to share their ideas and opinions about how to improve school life. Each class has elected two children to be the representatives for their class.  These members make up the group.


Being a Cutthorpe Primary School's Parliament Member is an important and rewarding job.  MPs need to be good listeners, to be able to negotiate well with their peers and to be able to communicate confidently with a range of people.  Children will also learn a lot along the way and these skills are transferable to many aspects of their future lives.


Why do we need a School Parliament?

  • To allow the voice of almost 100 children to be heard

  • To work alongside all the children in a collaborative manner

  • To improve the school for everyone

  • To be positive role models who ignite aspiration in themselves and others

  • To be an extension to the extra work that all the adults already do

During the Autumn term, the school parliament will encourage the children to take part in 'the five ways to wellbeing'

We will discuss how important it is to find, and practice, positive ways of thinking as they can help you through life's ups and downs.


There are some simple things that everyone can do that can help boost moods and keep you happy. They're easy to do and don't have to cost a penny.


They're known as the 5 ways to wellbeing and they are:

  • Keep active

  • Take notice

  • Connect

  • Keep learning

  • Give


Here are some of the things we are going to do to keep active.



The representatives will organise games and purchase new play equipment that will be shared at play times. Play leaders will also help the child who struggled to play fairly or mix with others enjoy games. 


Be active

The representatives and the play leaders will encourage children to play different games and try new sports.
