Democracy is evident within the school, particularly in our school council. For example, children run election campaigns to become school councillors including posters, speeches etc. There is then a secret ballot, including ballot boxes, in each school council group! Children have the opportunity to have their voices heard through the School Council and questionnaires and pupil voice interviews. School Council facilitates the promotion of democratic processes, fostering the concept and application of freedom of speech and group action to address needs and concerns. The groups meet fortnightly in mixed age groups with all children from Year 1 upwards participating.
