Democracy

Children have many opportunities for their voices to be heard.

  • School Council We have a school council which meets regularly to discuss issues raised in class and suggestions placed in the School Council box. The Council members are voted in by members of the school during an Election day.

The council has its own budget and is able to genuinely effect change within the school and community. They organise fundraising events such as designing Christmas wrapping paper and Easter eggs . Contributions have been made to the local Foodbank and to other community charities.

  • VIP meetings Children are invited each week to provide feedback on varying aspects of school life eg lunch, behaviour , library, curriculum areas, playground. Their comments are recorded and impact on decisions made in school.
  • Philosophy for Children (P4C) Children are encouraged to discuss and debate a range of topics.
  • Class assemblies Children are encouraged to contribute to their class assemblies. The focus of these are P4C and British Values. Different topics are discussed each week.

Parliament Assembly and Y6 Debating Workshop.

 

We had a visiting speaker from the Houses of Parliament to come into school to talk to our KS2 children about how Parliament works and what it means to live in a democratic society.

 

Year 6 then took part in a debating workshop to further understand how the decisions which affect the way our country is run and ruled are made in Parliament
