Democracy is embedded at our school. Pupils are always listened to by adults and are taught to listen carefully and with concern to each other, respecting the right of every individual to have their opinions and voices heard.

Elections for the Pupil Council are based on pupil votes, reflecting our British electoral system and demonstrating democracy in action.
