Leeds City Academy's Student Parliament exists to ensure that teaching, learning and student experience is improved through Student Voice. The Student Parliament is core to Academy life, assisting in crucial aspects of the school's decision-making.
The Parliament is comprised of students from Year 7 to Year 11, who are actively involved in interviewing new staff, discussing rewards and developing fundraising activities. At Leeds City Academy, Student Parliament demonstrates democracy in action and is an extension of the school's practical propagation of British Values.
Our Student Parliament is split into six different departments (See below), each working on key areas of the Academy. Voting for the entire cabinet takes place in September of each year where any student can stand for a place on the Student Parliament. We also hold elections for Chair and associate leaders (see below)
Our Culture Coaches work on PSHE projects throughout the year, delivering assemblies, mentoring students and organising information stalls. The Culture Coach Champion oversees this work.
