Harris Primary Academy Beckenham have recently formed their Pupil Parliament. We actively promote pupil independence and leadership opportunities with the aim of developing valuable leadership, communication and organisation skills. We believe that it is vital for our pupils to have a voice and be involved in key matters related to our academy.
Children can share new ideas or matters that need to be discussed, feed back to their classes and bring thoughts and resolutions on issues affecting them. These are all recorded as minutes and are published below. The outcomes of these discussions are shared with the Senior Leadership Team who consider, discuss and respond to the matters raised.
Our Pupil Parliament representatives play a very important role in supporting our development. Each class nominates 2 representatives to attend meetings which are held on a regular basis and facilitated by staff members to discuss issues that are important to the children and work on projects to improve their academy.
