Primary Parliament is a termly opportunity for pupil representatives primary schools across Nottingham City to come together and have their voices heard
Pupils explore a wide range of global and local issues that matter to them and to their futures and their creativity and ideas are facilitated by cultural and educational organisations, researchers and specialists. The upmost emphasis is placed on collaboration, creativity and communication.
A collaboration with Nottingham City Council and ChalleNGe, Primary Parliament takes places each term, with schools invited to bring a small group of pupils the Nottingham Council House. Since 2020, Primary Parliament has included a virtual option, opening up participation to more children in schools as well providing bespoke activities for children attending special schools.
Over the past seven years, Primary Parliament has been the catalyst for many projects, including the Museum of the Street and the involvement of pupils in the Transport Committee's Trains for The Future inquiry, which saw ten pupils present to MPs in the Houses of Parliament.
