The democratic processes within school ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to contribute to school development.  Pupils have the opportunity to have their voices heard through School Council and Eco-Council. Each year, elections are held and children engage in the democratic process by completing and returning ballot forms in a formal election procedure.  Please visit the School Council and Eco Council section of our website for further information. 

All members of our school community, including pupils, staff, governors, and parents have the opportunity to play a role in making decisions in our school. This is done through pupil interviews, Parent Council, parent/staff/pupil questionnaires, Governor Committees, Leadership and Management meetings and Year group/Phase meetings and fortnightly School Council Meetings.

Throughout school, we show the value of democracy by:

  • having a School Council, Eco-council, House Captains and Vice Captains;
  • voting for class representatives to the School Council;
  • studying the development of sovereignty and government in Britain over time
  • raising awareness of current affairs with the children at an age appropriate level
  • pupils having the opportunity to select charities we raise money for

Fundamental British Values are interwoven into our PSHE Curriculum, taught through 6 themes across the school year from Nursery to Year 6.
