Five pits cluster / Parliament

The five pits cluster of schools meet regularly to support each other and develop ideas as a cluster of schools. This includes joint INSET days, moderation activities, heads meetings and smaller group support. We have pupil parliament meetings where the 'Parliament' meet together to discuss things as a pupil voice and work collaboratively together. The collaborative working helps us to become stronger together and allows for sharing of practice, ideas, resources and offers genuine support. The collaboration consists

of Morton primary School, Westhouses Primary School, Stonebroom Primary School, Tibshelf Infant School, Heath Primary School, Shirland Primary School, Pilsley Primary School, Blackwell Primary School, Newton primary School, Tibshelf Community School, Town End Junior School and Mickley Infant School.

Forest School Parliament meeting

The Children attended Pupil Parliament at Stonebroom Primary School as part of the 5 pits collaboration. The schools work together regularly. The children explored the forest area and met the animals. They worked in partnership with each other.

Pupil Parliament at Shirland Primary School

We have elected two new members of the Pupil Parliament. Colby and Lexi will represent the school at the 5 pits cluster parliament meetings.
Our children visited Blackwell Primary school for another session of pupil parliament. They talked about their schools and held a discussion about fidget spinners and whether or not they should be banned!

Parliament sat again in June at Blackwell Primary school.

Vincent and Brihanna represented Mickley Infant school at the first meeting of the Five pits parliament. They enjoyed a welcome speech by MP Dennis Skinner and worked together as teams , meeting children from each of the cluster schools, to play a Skittles game.
