At the academy we want to empower our young people to take an active responsibility in the decision-making processes. Giving our students’ views weight is particularly important in the elimination of discrimination and prevention of bullying.
Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy has launched a new Student Parliament who will benefit from increased rights and responsibilities. They will ensure that all our students’ voices are heard whilst developing their own leadership skills.
The Academy is currently split into 5 ‘House’ categories with students assigned to one of them when they first join the school. These Houses are named after prominent childrens writers Browne, Cottrell-Boyce, Nixon, Tafari and Wilson. Each of these also have a colour assigned to them (red, green, yellow, blue and purple respectively).
The Parliament meets with members of staff to discuss ideas and issues within the academy. Download a copy of the latest minutes here.
