Our children play an active role in the decisions affecting our school. Our new parliament, recently appointed following a series of interviews, letters of application from the candidates and some passionately argued speeches, has already started work on their first task. Ministers will be leading the way in the development of our new library. They will be writing to potential sponsors, seeking the views and book recommendations of our children and staff, and suggesting improvements and innovations to the library area that will benefit the whole school. Helping to cost and budget for this ambitious project will also be part of their remit.
