On Thursday 2nd December, the Student Parliament came together for the second meeting this year.

Last time, we saw all the CDC reps contributing and really engaging in the discussion, and that same spirit was evident as students worked together to give their feedback from discussions in their Character Development Groups, as well as suggest potential counters and solutions.

The agenda was as follows, with the overarching theme being ‘Independent Learning/Study’
With the number of enthusiastic students, all eager to make the voices of their respective CDC groups heard, some time was taken for the CDC representatives to discuss each issue raised within their year groups. Each year group was able to initiate and dictate a productive conversation, narrowing down and prioritising specific areas they wished to talk about. This was then fed back to everyone else.

In KS3, the topic of discussion was mainly centred around the level of homework issued. It opened the floor to a long-lasting debate, at the end of which we saw the older students giving words of advice and encouragement on work ethic and time management to the younger years.

The Year 10s and Year 11s made equally excellent contributions, with both years focusing on how they could further their independent revision and productivity inside school.

Finally, the meeting rounded off with the sixth formers expressing their highest priority issues, ending another constructive and positive gathering of the Student Parliament.

It was fantastic to see and hear the wonderful discussions taking place – well done to all the students that attended.

Thank you to Mr Burley and our head students, Bhuvan and Isabel, for facilitating the meeting, as well as the rest of the senior student leadership team.
