Student Voice

At Tregolls Academy, we believe in encouraging our pupils to be confident in sharing their views and engaging them in roles of responsibility to help our school become even better.

How do we do this?

Head Boy and Head Girl

Firstly, each year, a boy and girl from Year 6 are selected to become Head Boy and Head Girl. Their role is to represent the pupils in various ways and to support the Headteacher in pupil matters. The children chosen are excellent role models for the other children and are able to lead a team of prefects. They are expected to establish and maintain the highest standards of behaviour and attitude at all times, providing a positive role model for other students across the school.

Pupil Parliament

Each year a boy and girl representative from each class is nominated by their class to sit on the Pupil Parliament. The Parliament meets with the Assistant Headteacher weekly to discuss any school issues or plan any forthcoming events. Every week, each class holds a meeting where they discuss any class issues arising which could feed in to the next Pupil Parliament meeting.

What do the Pupil Parliament Members do?

The Pupil Parliament takes part in lots of activities including:

• Listening to the views and concerns of other pupils;
• Representing these concerns to the Headteacher, teachers and other adults;
• Coming up with ideas to help improve the school and make decisions;
• Thinking of ways to contribute locally and globally;
• Fundraise for Tregolls and charities;
• Having the responsibility for a budget;

Being a Pupil Parliament member is a very responsible position as you have to have a lot of sensible ideas and sometimes have to do things in your lunch times. Members play a very important part in our Tregolls community!
Pupil Parliament: Special Jumpers

A huge congratulations to our Pupil Parliament members who were presented with their special jumpers today. Don’t they look official?! Now they will be more recognisable around the school, so other children can go and share their ideas with them. We have already had lots of productive meetings and the children have been great at actioning their plans for the school.
