Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. Pupil parliament provides a meaningful way in which pupils from across the MAT can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them whilst teaching our young people about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.
As such, our pupil parliament will exemplify our vision and core values.
P – Pupil voice counts at SBMAT.
E – We want to empower our pupils and to develop their ability to make change,
