At Hopewell School we have a Pupil Parliament made up of pupils voted in by their peers. The Parliament meets once every half term.
We are keen for pupils to have a voice within the school and we therefore created a Pupil Parliament.
The Parliament contains representatives from each class, voted for by their peers and they meet once every half term to talk about developments within the school and any issues that have been brought up by the member of their class group. It is the representative’s responsibility to ensure the views of other pupils are collected and then communicated in the meeting.
At each meeting different topics are discussed. These have included:
We encourage all our young people to do their best and believe an exceptional attitude should be recognised. As a result, we have introduced Pupil Leaders which pupils can work towards.
These honours are decided by staff. Pupils can earn Leader status through consistent effort and determination. Leaders are expected to act as role models to other pupils and are given additional responsibilities and certain privileges.
There are several opportunities for pupils to take on extra responsibility or develop themselves and their team work skills through Extra Curricula Activities and the Personal Development Programme.
At Hopewell we think it is important to help those around us and we greatly enjoy our fundraising events. These include:
School informs me everyday how my kid’s day has been. Staff put a lot of work into meeting his needs.

My son absolutely loves school.
I am happy with my son’s progress and with his learning in classes. I’m impressed with the communication.
