Early in the autumn term, all classes discuss the importance of listening to each other. This helps us become a better community. We develop this conversation around the concept of democracy, a key Britsh value and one enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (specifically Articles 1, 19 and 21).
Classes in KS1 and KS2 elect two representatives to join the School Council who discuss issues inportant to the children. These in turn contibute to the daily life of school. One example of pupil voice and democracy in action was the decision to allow children to sit in a place of their choice in the dinning room to mix with their friends rather than in set places.
The Council meets regularly with a staff member and Mr Saunders will sometimes attend the session.
